Art-Making with Maggie Thompson
Settle into the cozy main lobby warming house and make something beautiful with local artist Maggie Thompson.
Maggie Thompson (Fond du Lac Ojibwe) was born and raised in Minneapolis. She received her BFA in textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2013. As a textile artist and designer she derives her inspiration from her Ojibwe heritage, exploring family history as well as themes and subject matter of the broader Native American experience. Thompson had her first solo exhibition Where I Fit at All My Relations Gallery in 2014 and has since exhibited at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Plains Art Museum. In 2015, she received support from the Minnesota State Arts Board Cultural Community Partnership Grant and the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Regional Fellowship.
