Join WGM for a tour of Hearts of Our People, an exhibition featuring the work of more than 100 Native women artists, organized by and presented at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia). Our guide, Mia curator Jill Alberg Yohe, will lead us through the galleries to reflect on the stories and work presented. You’ll have additional time to walk through the exhibition on your own following the tour.

For those interested, we’ll meet up (minus our guide) about 60 minutes after the tour ends for an informal discussion on the first floor outside Mia’s coffeeshop.

This event is limited to 15 people. Your fee will include your ticket into the event and covers WGM’s costs to set up this private tour. REGISTER

From Mia: About the Exhibition

Women have long been the creative force behind Native art. Presented in close cooperation with top Native women artists and scholars, this first major exhibition of artwork by Native women honors the achievements of over 115 artists from the United States and Canada spanning over 1,000 years. Their triumphs—from pottery, textiles, and painting, to photographic portraits, to a gleaming El Camino—show astonishing innovation and technical mastery. Learn more about the exhibition from our Frequently Asked Questions page. The exhibition runs through August 18.
