Tamsie Ringler - River Lee Project

Tamsie Ringler Pours Iron in Ireland

From its source in the Shehy Mountains on the Cork-Kerry border to where it empties into the Irish Sea at Cork Harbour, the River Lee embodies over 5000 years of human habitation and experience. Tamsie Ringler’s River Lee Project focuses on the importance of the River Lee to the daily life and heritage of Cork City and its surrounding areas. Iron is an elemental metal that signifies our connection with the world on a primal level. It runs through our bloodstream in much the same way as rivers run through our landscape. With the looming threat of flood-walls around Cork City, the River Lee Project represents our physical and emotional connection to our rivers and the importance of maintaining that connection.
Jeff Millikan - Yelling Geese

Jeff Millikan Exhibition at the Bell Museum

For the past six months, as the Bell Museum has moved to its new home in St Paul, Jeff Millikan has been investigating the galleries and collection rooms, exploring the museum’s vast reservoir of objects, artifacts and scientific specimens. As the museum has worked to preserve, move and re-interpret its dioramas and other displays, Millikan has discovered and captured unexpected views and connections. A polar bear and snow geese peer out from their translucent wrappings. Small dioramas are freed from their confining windows and float as if in space. As an artist-in-residence, Millikan has also explored the museum’s scientific collections. Expect to see preserved snakes, fish, insects and birds in contexts that will make us question our relationship to nature. As a participant in the Bell’s Resident Artist Research Program, Millikan has worked with both the public and research collections of the Bell. He has taught photography at the University of Minnesota for the last 35 years and is currently an Adjunct Professor in the Art Department.
Melissa Borman - East African Photo Exhibition

Melissa Borman Curates East African Student Photo Exhibition

“Photography allows people to tell their stories that might not be able to tell it any other way,” said Borman. “It lets them know their voice matters, that what they have to say about their culture, about their lives, about their identities, is important.” To help East African high school students tell their stories, Century College collaborated with Somali-born photographer Mohamud Mumin to facilitate the Youth Outreach and Engagement Project, an educational program in photography funded by the Minnesota State Arts Board.
