Art exhibit to feature year among Hmong farmers

RED WING — Beginning Friday, Red Wing Arts will sponsor a photo exhibit showing a year in the life of Hmong-American farmers in Vermillion Township.

Held at the Red Wing Depot Gallery, "Seeds of Change: A Portrait of the Hmong American Farmers Association" is a series of photographs and videos of Hmong farmers, presented by multimedia artist Mike Hazard with the support of the Hmong American Farmers Association. Hazard’s photographs highlight the rich culture and heritage of our state’s Hmong community.

The exhibit, organized by the Minnesota Museum of American Art, has been on tour since 2016. Red Wing is the final stop on the schedule. Seeds of Change will be on display through Sept. 23.

"This is our first time working with the (Minnesota Museum of American Art), and we are excited to bring this caliber of exhibit to our community," said Red Wing Arts Executive Director Emily Guida Foos. "The exhibit provides a look into the daily lives of the Hmong farming community and culture, a co-op community not far from Red Wing, it intimately exposes the viewer to their story."

An Opening Night reception for the exhibit, free and open to the public, will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday at the Depot Gallery with an artist discussion with Mike Hazard t 5:30 p.m. The Depot Gallery is at 418 Levee Street in Red Wing.
