The Omazinibii’igeg Collective’s first professional Art Exhibit and Talk: Spirit Lines, premiered on May 12, 2017 at Neechi Commons. Talented musician Don Amero opened the show with an inspiring performance.
Spirit Lines is an art exhibit featuring the original paintings of over 30 Indigenous youth artists based on Indigenous teaching that when children are born they pass through Creator/God and are then connected by a Spirit Line. This Spirit Line can weaken as they become adults, but grows strong again when they reach the Elder stage in life.
Spirit Lines will run until June 18, 2017. The students hope to build on the momentum of this first professional art exhibit and have “Spirit Lines” appear at other art galleries across Winnipeg, the province of Manitoba, and beyond.
This exhibit is presented by the abORIGINAL Student Co-op project, Children of the Earth High School (COTE), the Manitoba Cooperative Association, and SEED Winnipeg.
The Omazinibii’igeg Collective is made up of COTE High School students from Winnipeg’s North End. Formed in 2014, the collective works in partnership with the abORIGINAL student co-op project and empowers COTE artists to market their work through co-ops and entrepreneurship.
