  • The Incandescent Detail
    Art of Living: Maureen Aitken writes, "In that way, my writing was an act of love — a prayer in gratitude for what we had, and an antidote to all of the failed treatments. In this time we had together at the end, Mary Ann helped me see a way to survive by building an inner palace — a place no one could touch, both luminous and alive."
  • The Song of Life
    Endings Theme: Megan Druckrey reflects on her work as a hospice music therapist. "When we sing or play a song that holds meaning for someone, it automatically transports us to that time and place. We are able to access memories more easily."
  • Native Feminists Talk About Excellence
    At a panel discussion of Native women artists, organized by All My Relations Gallery, moderator Ananya Chatterjee asked, “As feminist artists, in your own ways, how do you interpret the notion of ‘excellence?’”
  • Creative Healing
    Marjorie Fedyszyn: "The silence and secrecy of our collective trauma weighs heavily on society. What I had not expected was the number of people, some strangers and some friends, who were compelled to share their own stories with me after they saw my work."
  • Dual Identity on Stage
    Art of Living: Multiracial actor and singer Meghan Kreidler is seeking more projects that are about the uniqueness of mixed-race identity.
  • 2018 Changemaker: Norah Shapiro
    Battling Inequities From Law to Film: Norah Shapiro has created a film about Ilhan Omar's rise in politics, to serve as a ‘how-to’ for grassroots candidates, women of color, young people, and “anyone who has felt that the political system is impenetrable and hopeless.” 
  • Focus on the Under-represented
    Casey Riley, new curator at Mia, believes now is an exciting time in art history, because past contributions of women photographers and photographers of color are being newly discovered. 
  • Artistic Transformation in Small Towns
    Ashley Hanson: "Although this work can be isolating, challenging, and underfunded, rural arts is producing powerful work that is getting more recognition for the impact we are having in our communities."
  • Regan Golden:  Edgelands
    Art of Living: Regan Golden: Edgelands
  • Art of Living: Artists in the Kitchen
    A recent exhibit at the Textile Center paired 50 teams of chefs and artists to inspire visual art pieces that both celebrated and challenged the way we think about food.
  • Becca Cerra: Altered Aesthetics
    Art of Living: Creating wearable sculptures in collaboration with people who have amputations.
  • After the Storm
    Art of Living: Artist Corey Habbas explores the idea of structural discrimination and alienation caused by prejudice.
  • Art of Living: Weaving Without Pattern
    This kind of weaving is difficult for people who want to be very structured, but sometimes it’s nice to say, “I don’t have to follow a pattern. It’s coming from my heart.” 
  • What We Don't Talk About
    Art of Living: “I am fascinated by what is not said in conversations. Our Facebook/Instagram culture is about sharing good, perfect moments. What is it we don't openly talk about and why?”
  • I Am Somali
    "I Am Somali," a new exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, features local Somali artist Ifrah Mansour. Read more.
