A new "Indigenous" solo art exhibition debuted at AICHO’s Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center in Duluth Friday evening.

The exhibition features more than 30 large scales paintings by Shaun Chosa, a Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa tribal citizen and painter/graphic design artist.

The works primarily depict indigenous portraits.

“A lot of these images have been painted many times before. It’s almost like a rite of passage for anybody that’s associating that theme, not just Native American artists,” explained Chosa. “It was a great opportunity; the perfect time, perfect place.”

The Exhibition is funded in part by The McKnight Foundation and Arrowhead Regional Arts Council.

It will be on display until September 16th.
