Youth Art exhibit to debut on Pow Wow Grounds coffee shop


 youth art showYouth from Waubun and Mahnomen Schools (6th-8th graders) in Mahnomen, MN. who took part in the Nature of Technology Camp last summer will be the first to have their photographs displayed on the new youth art wall at the Pow Wow Grounds coffee shop in Minneapolis.
Some of those photographs that will be part of the exhibit won the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge Nature Photo contest in 2010.
The youth art exhibit will be on display at the Pow Wow Grounds at Franklin Ave during the coffee shop hours. The wall is being reserved for Native youth artwork and the new exhibit is scheduled to go up March 4 and remain on display through the end of March. The wall space is part of the All My Relations Gallery exhibit space which is owned and operated by NACDI. The advisory board of the ARM Gallery is looking for other Native youth artwork to consider for future exhibits. Kelly Drummer new director of Tiwahe Foundation development and programs
