On Tuesday, January 20, 2015, from 3:30 to 6 p.m., join us for a Creative Fellow Open House at the opening of RCAH professor Dylan Miner's Crossing Borders exhibit at MSU Global. The exhibit is on display in the MSU Global Gallery from January 20 through February 18, 2015, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Crossing Borders features select pieces of Miner's work from two projects that are influenced by Indigenous history and culture. They explore themes of collaboration between art and community, while prompting us to think about how we can become active participants in building a better society.

 
Native Kids Ride Bikes is an ongoing project that brings together Indigenous youth and artists with non-Native university students to create low-rider bikes that give insight into the foundation of the Anishinaabeg people's teachings. Each bike represents a different teaching of Our Seven Grandfathers: wisdom, love, respect, bravery, honesty, humility, and truth.
 
Michif-Michin or, "the people, the medicine" represents non-Western forms of community healing and health through soft and bright relief prints of plants, which Miner collected when he was learning about the various ingredients of earth-medicines.
