Bemidji, MN – Watermark Art Center presents “Aabijijiwan – It Flows Continuously” to open May 13, 2022 with a reception and artist conversation on Sunday May 15 from 2 – 4pm. This exhibit is the culmination of two and a half years of artistic and scientific collaboration between artists from opposite ends of the Misi Ziibi (Mississippi). Multimedia artists Karen Goulet’s (White Earth Nation, Minnesota) and Monique Verdin’s (Louisiana’s United Houma Nation) works are interwoven in time as a representation the artists’ personal histories and those of Indigenous peoples who have lived on the banks of the river since time immemorial. Aabijijiwan gives voice to those stories that connect them to this waterway.

Learn more about the role of this exhibit as part of the “Big River Continuum” , a creative exchange involving collaboration between the University of Minnesota’s Itasca Biological Station at the Mississippi headwaters, Watermark Art Center, the Weisman Art Museum, and Tulane University’s A Studio in the Woods in the Mississippi Delta at watermarkartcenter.org. Watermark galleries are free and open to the public Monday – Saturday from 10 to 5pm and located at 505 Bemidji Avenue N. in Bemidji, Minnesota. 218-444-7570.
