Exploring Northern Minnesota Native perspectives on gathering the sun
The sun is a source of enormous common wealth. It grows our food; it warms our water. And now, with solar energy technology, we have a new way to gather and share the sun’s abundant gifts. The Solar Commons Research Project and the American Indian Community Housing Organization are inviting Native artists of all ages who live in, or identify with Northern Minnesota to contribute art images that express to them, the idea of ‘gathering the sun’ in an online exhibit called “Gifts of the Northern Sun.” Anyone who feels inspired to share an image and some written reflections can participate – you don’t need to be a professional artist, but professional artists are welcome to share their vision too.
