IP artist Cristina Rodriguez will present photographs and video work during a one hour presentation at the Bois Forte Tribal Center.. The exhibit “Our Stories / Our Dreams” provides an insight into the spirit of Latinx artists living in Crookston Minnesota.
“The universe holds a lot of places and within it you find many unique differences and individualities. With all those differences that take place we all have our stories. These in particular stories come from a rural place in northern Minnesota. A place many have traveled to from other parts of the Map to call home. There has been a struggle within to find an identity. Many have helped pave a way and new generations have begun to call Crookston a home. Still many youth seek out in the form of artistic ways to express their struggles and individuality which is brought forth with the Fresh Voices program through both Digital Storytelling and Videography. The work presented here are stories from individuals who have spoke out and expressed their selves through works of art.”
—Cristina Rodriguez, Curator
