Artist in Residence

When EQI and AISC moved into our new space in Merrill Hall we found the space lacking in visibility of the Indigenous Presence that was now in this building. When we inquired about what could we do with the empty wall space we were told we could do as we needed to. “We should have big murals representing the all the Native Nations of Wisconsin,” and with that this project was born.

Over the next few years the Electa Quinney Institute, in partnership and collaboration with the American Indian Student Center, utilizing funds from Bader Philanthropies, will be hosting a number of native artists to share their talents.
