Bringing together Artists and the community.
For important conversations.
About Indigenous Sovereignty.
And Environmental justice.
The visual arts figured prominently in our inaugural SOLIDARITY STREET GALLERY in 2020 - and it is the central focus in our 2021 edition of the festival again. Visual art is the universal language that connects all humanity no matter what color, race or origin. It is an essential part of every culture. It can serve as a common ground for better cross-cultural understanding, for building new connections, and for establishing a genuine sense of solidarity.

Outdoor Sculpture Installation
Curated Gallery Exhibition
Our partners at Oyate Hotanin have been collaborating with a number of Native Artists, many from the Twin Cities or greater Minnesota, to curate a compelling gallery-style exhibit of original works. Additional Native artists came to the exhibit fomr the Public Call for Artwork and East Side Arts Council. The exhibit aims to educate about the history of Native people in our city, state and country; illuminate how that history, together with Native traditions, is shaping the experience and identity of Native people in our current society; and share ambitions and dreams for a new era of understanding, healing and change.
