The resistance continues at the Minnesota Museum of American Art, where artists from marginalized communities share their perspectives on a phrase central to the United States. “We the People,” the opening line of the U.S. Constitution, originally only referred to white men. How can the phrase, and the notion of what the Constitution stands for, be reclaimed by immigrant, native, and other points of view? This exhibit is put together by four different curators: painter Christopher Harrison, the MMAA’s Johnnay Leenay, Maggie Thomson of Two Rivers Gallery, and Mary Anne Quiroz, from the Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center. Among the artists are Star Wallowing Bull, Zackary Drucker, Rico Gatson, Susan Hauptman, Nooshin Hakim Javadi, and Steve Ozone.
