The current space at Close House, will remain my studio and house the Indigenous Art Alliance stuff. We will also be doing some video production stuff for the Youtube channel and well be bringing back some shows I created during the pandemic. Stay tuned for that!

Our future vision is to eventually offer artist residencies and showcase their artwork at the Indigenous Peoples Art Gallery and Cafe.

I want to introduce you to the New Home of the Indigenous Peoples Art Gallery and Cafe!! Located here at 10 S. Gilbert St. Iowa City, Ia. After years of planning, searching, planning again. I have found a space that will do all the things I want to do with my vision of bringing Indigenous/Native arts and historical education about the tribes that lived in Iowa, to Iowa! A place where you can learn, and see some amazing art from Indigenous artists, whether its an art exhibitions, a poetry reading, a film screening, a fashion show, a food demo, a lecture about Iowa native peoples, this is the place!! So soread the word, tell your friends, that there will be a place to get "educated through the arts", here at the Indigenous Peoples Art Gallery and Cafe! Thanks to all who helped make this happen. Especially PS1!! Thanks to the friends who've edited things, let me crash on a couch, donated for art supplies, shared posts, and expressed interest in helping make this possible. To my board and all the players behind the scenes a big thank you!! Stay tuned for future updates!
