The Duluth Art Institute enriches daily life with dynamic, innovative visual arts programming that upholds excellence and promotes inclusive community participation.
Thursday, February 29
DAI Galleries, 4th Floor, 506 W Michigan St, Duluth, MN 55802
Hear directly from celebrated Minnesota artist & 2022 Guggenheim Fellow Ta-coumba T. Aiken at this combined reception, artist talk, and poetry book launch with poet Arleta Little.
Aiken's energetic, evocative work shines in two formats: exhibited in Morrison Gallery in The Way I See, and sharing the page with nationally acclaimed poet Arleta Little in their joint publication, Black Swallowtail. The poetry book combines Little's poetry series with a selection of Aiken's paintings chosen to reflect the themes of mortality, ancestry, and beauty that swirl between word and image.
Galleries are open from 10:00am through end of event—feel free to stop by early to see the exhibition!
