The Magnificent Golden Agers. Who wouldn’t want to see what they’ve created?

This group of women elders worked with teaching artists at the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center in St. Paul to create collages, written reflections, poetry and photographs “that reflect discussions around the themes of Black identity and the intersection of art and activism,” according to a news release from the Minnesota Museum of American Art. The exhibit “Wise, Gifted and Black” opens June 27 and runs through July 17 in the M’s storefront window gallery on North Robert Street. The exhibit will also be on permanent display at Hallie Q. Brown. This is the second time the M and the community center have hosted the Golden Agers, “who have come to embrace their identities as artists and creatives over the course of this project,” according to the M.

In conjunction with the exhibit, there will be an art kit pickup from 1 to 3 p.m. July 11 outside the M’s entrance, 350 Robert St. N., St. Paul. The free, all-ages art kit includes art supplies and activities. Each kit includes a copy of Dr. Artika Tyner’s “Joey and Grandpa Johnson’s Day in Rondo,” a children’s book that celebrates the legacy of the Rondo neighborhood, as well as “From Hurt to Healing,” an intergenerational healing activity book created by the Irreducible Grace Foundation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the murder of George Floyd.

St. Paul Public Schools 2021 Honors Visual Art Exhibition will run June 27-July 17 in the window gallery on Fourth Street, showcasing work by student artists. The exhibit is a long-standing collaboration between the schools, the M and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts. In the program’s 30 years, more than 9,500 high school students have participated. The students are selected to participate through auditions and art submissions.
