“We learned a lot” | The Walker Art Center on backlash from Indigenous communities and Angela Two Stars commission

In the summer of 2021, Josh Baer and The Baer Faxt team hit the road to highlight great art in unexpected places. In Minneapolis, we discovered The Walker Art Center and the connecting Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. In this segment, director Mary Ceruti discusses the history of the sculpture park, what they have learned from the controversy of Sam Durant's Scaffold installation, and the museum's upcoming commission by artist Angela Two Stars. We also go inside Angela's studio where she gives us a deep dive inside the meaning behind her sculpture and what it means to her and her community. Okciyapi by Angela Two Stars opens to the public on October 9th, 2021.
