Springboard Public Art Installation!

New Public Art by all Native Team!


Heart Berry is so excited to finally reveal the new installation by Heart Berry's Howes, Holly Young (Dakota), and Nedahness Greene (Ojibwe).  The team won the Native Presence Commission and has finally realized this vision to brighten University Avenue in St Paul.  

More than just a land acknowledgment:

Springboard for the Arts is committed to acting on their values and thus prioritized a Native Presence Installation for the predominant place on their building.  Installed across 25 windows surrounding the building, our team brings together ledger, beadwork, and photography in this stunning, large scale collaboration. 


Dakota territory:

Our team knew we needed to collaborate with a Dakota artist, and are thrilled ledger artist Holly Young decided to be a lead in our work.  



Modern and Contemporary:

We love the mix of traditional and contemporary by combining pencil with window film, photography and regalia.  This is who we are as Native people is this blend of all genres.
