The "Bring Her Home: Stolen Daughters of Turtle Island" exhibit opens Friday, Oct. 11 at the Watermark Art Center with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Angela Two Stars, curator, will give a brief introduction at 6 p.m.
In step with the international #MMIW (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women) awareness campaign, "Bring Her Home" addresses the epidemic of violence against Native women through paintings, digital work, sculpture and photography.
The traveling exhibit features original work by 20 indigenous artists from across the U.S. and many tribal nations. Through their work, artists tell their own stories and those of the impacted women, families and communities.
Minnesota is one of only seven states to have established a task force to study the prevalence of violence against indigenous women and girls.
“Bring Her Home” will be on display at the center through the month November for Native American Heritage Month. Watermark Art Center is located at 505 Bemidji Ave. N.
