Go See Native American Art!


Last Monday I introduced you to the Pow Wow Grounds cafe that also has an art gallery next to the coffee shop.  Because the lighting that day could not produce good photos to show you some of the art, I photographed this poster located outside the building.  The art piece itself is very interesting because attached to each heart is a porcupine quill.  The exhibit contains art of many different genres, recounting various aspects of Native American history.  If you live near the Twin Cities, I guarantee that you will enjoy the art.  
Go See!
