Race in the Arts with Central MN Arts Board “Blindspots”
July 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The Central Minnesota Arts Board is continuing their online discussion series “Race in the Arts.”
The next session is themed “Blindspots ” and addresses how racism appears in unconscious patters, beliefs and behaviors.
The conversation is with Laura Youngbird, is an award-winning artist and arts educator. An enrolled member of the Minnesota Chippewa, Grand Portage Band, Laura currently lives in Breckenridge and is the former Director of Native American Art at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo.
The themes in her work originated from experiences her grandmother had while at boarding schools, and issues that surrounded Native American assimilation into non-Indian culture. Laura also explores the influences of Christianity on American Indian spirituality and life views.
The next discussion on Race In the Arts begins at 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 22nd.
