. Native in the Arts Spotlight: Visual Artist Andrea Carlson Talks About Her Chicago “You Are on Potawatomi Land” Mural « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NATIVE NEWS ONLINE – The “Windy City” is undergoing a cultural reckoning, especially within the public art scene, and Native people are making their presence known. Just below the city’s ever-changing skyline is its RiverWalk that caters to tourists by offering architectural boat tours and restaurants/bars along the southside of the Chicago River. Above the ticket stands is a mural with an eloquent reminder, “Bodéwadmikik ėthë yéyék/You are on Potawatomi Land.” The multilingual mural was created by local Ojibwe artist Andrea Carlson. It was installed this past June and will be on display for at least the next two years.
