Bring Her Home
This exhibition highlights the ongoing epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, as well as responds to the increased level of human trafficking.
This call for Art features selected Native artists of Turtle Island. Half of the artists selected represent the upper Midwest region: Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota
and Wisconsin. The artists were chosen by our guest curator/s based on:
1. Strength of the work focusing on artistic merit.
2. Strength of the work addressing the exhibition topic.
3. Diverse representation of mediums.
4. Diverse representation of emerging to established artists.
Please be aware this exhibition has the potential to trigger trauma in our artists and audience.

Music of our Time
The Ancia Saxophone Quartet will present a free concert featuring the works of living composers who have helped create the musical fabric of the Twin Cities. The program will include “Confluence,” written for Ancia by Grammy Award-winner and Minnesota resident Libby Larsen; two movements from “Short Stories” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon, which the group commissioned and premiered in Minnesota; and “Cordoba,” by jazz pianist and
Minneapolis-based composer Laura Caviani. Additionally, audiences will hear “Dark Waters” by Christopher Rutkowski, premiered recently by Ancia in Minneapolis, and two pieces selected by Ancia from the American Composers Forum’s national call for scores for the 2017 Minneapolis ACF Showcase Concert: Robin McLaughlin’s “On This Day” and Stephen Snowden’s “Speed Studies.”
Celebrated for its artistry, virtuosity and exquisitely blended sound, Ancia (pronounced AHN-chee-uh, the Italian word for reed) performs and conducts educational workshops throughout North America, Europe and Asia, juxtaposing traditional classical music with contemporary pieces by modern composers. The Minneapolis-based quartet’s repertoire spans centuries and musical styles—Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic, Jazz, and Pop—with a special focus on modern work. Ancia was recently selected as the feature group for the 2017 American Composers Forum Showcase Concert. Ancia is frequently featured on National Public
Radio’s Performance Today, Minnesota Public Radio’s Regional Spotlight, and Wisconsin Public Radio’s Live at the Chazen. The quartet has performed at three World Saxophone Congresses and has toured South Korea, Europe and the United States. The group’s passion for contemporary music pervades its critically heralded CD “Short Stories,” which features the title work by Jennifer Higdon along with music by Charles Ives, Fred Sturm and Michael Torke.
Group members are Joan Hutton (alto saxophone), Melissa Reiser (tenor saxophone), Matthew Sintchak (soprano saxophone) and Angela Wyatt (baritone saxophone).
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
The Weisman Art Museum and concert are free and open to the public. The parking ramp and the museum are both wheelchair-accessible.
