About this Event

The Tweed Museum of Art is offering a Tweevening Art Talk event with guest speaker, Marcia Anderson, who released her book A Bag Worth a Pony: The Art of the Ojibwe Bandolier Bag published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press, in 2017. Anderson will join us to share the history of the bandolier bag, a beautiful beaded bag that is becoming ubiquitous at powwows and other gatherings.

This program is offered in conjunction with the exhibition A Selection of Gashkibidaaganag that opened this past summer, with bandolier bags from the Tweed Museum and the Duluth Children’s Museum. Dr. Karissa White Isaacs curated the exhibition, and it is on view in the Nelson Display Case, upper level.

Ms. Anderson held various roles with the Arizona State Museum and the Arizona Historical Society including Site Manager, Registrar, Acting Curator of Education, Acting Collections Curator from 1973 to 1981. She then managed and developed the Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) three-dimensional collections from 1981-2011, and retired in 2011 as Senior Curator. Ms. Anderson has published her writings in several publications and she is currently working as an Independent Curator, Consultant and Lecturer.
