ART WEEK Cultural Conversation: To Be Remembered
How do we represent our whole history? Sherri Loonsfoot-Aldred shares her story as the first indigenous artist to design the ever-iconic sign welcoming the community to Presque Isle Park.
Mikewendaagozi (To Be Remembered) is the title for the painting gracing the entrance of Presque Isle. Artist Sherri Loonsfoot-Aldred is the first indigenous artist to design and paint the iconic sign. The actual sign contains a high-resolution scan; the original oil painting currently hangs in the Marquette City Hall Commission Chambers. Aldred will discuss the creation of the sign and its cultural significance.
Meet us at the sign at the entrance to Presque Isle!
