Workshop on Wheels with Arts Midwest
On an invitation from Arts Midwest (AM), a CAIRNS team hosted the AM Board of Directors, some of its staff, and a few others, for a day-and-a-half Workshop on Wheels. Today’s itinerary included stops in Pine Ridge Reservation at the Oglala Lakota Artspace (big thanks to Leslie Mesteth, Program Manager of the Artspace), lunch at Bette’s Kitchen, time at Wounded Knee, and a critical thinking activity at the Red Cloud Indian Art Show. Our traveling workshop then left the reservation and continued on to Sylvan Lake in the Black Hills, where Hank and Marianne Fridell regaled us with music and stories before supper. The picture is of workshop attendes in front of Rolling Rez Arts, a "state-of-the-art mobile arts space, business training center, and mobile bank” that serves residents of Pine Ridge Reservation.
