CCLI Relaunch Gathering

December 03, 2019, 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Meet Creative Community Leadership Institute’s new lead organizations Plains Art Museum (Fargo, ND), Racing Magpie (Rapid City, SD), and Springboard for the Arts (St. Paul and Fergus Falls, MN)!

Gather with CCLI alums and other friends of creative community building to celebrate, have some snacks, and learn about the relaunch of CCLI across Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Program staff will announce the new structure of CCLI and what to expect in the coming years.

Artist and Community Changemaker Keith BraveHeart (Oglala Lakota) will share a short reflection on the importance of creativity in community change making. BraveHeart is a multimedia artist working primarily in painting, film, and community engagement. He grew up on the Pine Ridge reservation, in the community of Pejuta Haka “Medicine Root” (Kyle, SD), and is a citizen of the Oglala Sioux Tribe (Titonwan; Oceti Sakowin).

CCLI is co-led by Plains Art Museum (Fargo, ND), Racing Magpie (Rapid City, SD), and Springboard for the Arts (St. Paul and Fergus Falls, MN). CCLI is made possible through generous support from the Bush Foundation.

The Unchosen Ones

December 05, 2019 - March 21, 2020
Photographs by R.J. Kern

R.J. Kern’s photographic works can be unsettling – somehow both surreal and direct, light-hearted yet regal – as well as undeniably beautiful. The works from his series, The Unchosen Ones, expose subtleties in the human condition and honor the effort of the animals (and their handlers) who came in last place at ten Minnesota county fairs in 2016.
