My Home is Where My Tipi Sits is an upcoming exhibition at Missoula Art Museum. This is Wendy Red Star’s first solo exhibition, and MAM is pleased to be hosting it. The museum hopes many folks will come to town for this; we hope that those who do will stay in our Missoula Bed and Breakfast.
Wendy Red Star was born in Billings, Montana, and raised on the nearby Crow Reservation. She has lived in urban California and now resides in Portland, Oregon, but her art reflects her deep roots in the Crow Reservation of Montana. Her photographs depict everyday life on the reservation: cars, basketball hoops, sweat lodges and government houses.
Missoula Art Museum is hosting an Artist’s Reception for Wendy Red Star on August 5, 2011, from 5 – 8 p.m. Red Star will talk about her work that evening at 7 p.m. This event coincides with Missoula’s First Friday Art Walk, when all of the art galleries and museums in Missoula stay open late. It’s generally a festive occasion.
Whether you are traveling from eastern Montana or the East Coast of the U.S., you are sure to find Missoula a vibrant, interesting city. We enjoy nothing more than sharing our home town with guests of our Missoula Bed and Breakfast. Hope to see you soon.
More information about Red Star’s exhibit is available at MAM.
