Forecast Public Art - Grantees

Artist Rory Wakemup invites audiences to reconsider American Indian identity and history through his design and creation of unique costumes that combine traditional Native regalia with futuristic Star Wars style motifs. Youth participated in artist-led workshops to make their alter-ego costumes which were used in a performance at the Smart Wars Indigenous Day powwow to defeat racist mascots played by the comedy group The 1491s.

John Gwinn is a filmmaker and youthworker with over 20 years experience producing media with young people in Minneapolis and beyond. He won the 2008 Minneapolis Mosaic film commission for his work “In the Garden”, and he currently directs the First Person Productions project at MIGIZI Communications.
