The exhibition features 65 works of original art created by 64 artists representing 11 U.S. states. Submissions were juried by Christina Chang, curator of engagement at the Minnesota Museum of American Art in St. Paul. The show runs through April 5 in the Main and Sweeney Galleries on the third floor of the Octagon.
