Art Show Inspired by Philando Castile
on 21 June 2018
Open now at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (and free to the public), "Art and Healing: In the Moment" is a show inspired by Philando Castile—a man whose brutal death at the hands of police after being pulled over for what should have been just a traffic stop was not only heinous, but also filmed by his girlfriend. The exhibition is made up of works by 15 local artists, and came to be when Castile's mother suggested it—as she had received several gifts from artists who were touched by his death. Open during regular museum hours, there will also be a designated quiet space for those who need a moment to reflect afterwards.
