Where's Art: Celebrating Community and Nature

Dave Edmonson/Adventure Publications

Today, Annie talks about:

  • First Ladies of the Hillside, “a grassroots group of women who are working together from inside of the Central Hillside community to create opportunities for kindness and generosity for ourselves and for our community.” Among their initiatives is an art project called Healing Creations, that includes works by hillside artists Heather Zellner, Amber Pelfrey, and Rachel Ross, and the ongoing mission to “support other developing artists in the community to encourage healing through creating art big and small.”
  • Dudley Edmonson’s 2006 book, The Black & Brown Faces in America's Wild Places: African Americans Making Nature and the Environment a Part of Their Everyday Lives, published in 2006 by Adventure Publications, showcasing persons of color with deep connections to the outside world and insights into the way we live within the environment.
  • For the remainder of the month, The Tweed Museum in Duluth is showing a traveling exhibit, "Black Survival Guide, or How to Live Through a Police Riot" organized by the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, Delaware, who in 2018 commissioned artist Hank Willis Thomas to respond to the powerful and community-changing public response that followed the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968.
