Rosebud – Through Young Eyes

MAX in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Rosebud Reservation and 5 Corners Collective are empowering young native artists to consider and reflect on the impact of science and technology on their lives through visual art.

This past COVID summer, youth at the Boys and Girls Club of Rosebud guided by teaching artists, Robin Dahlberg and Josee Schryer, used their cell phones to document their lives under quarantine in South Dakota.   Enjoy the photos below and Read our interview with Dahlberg to discover more about this unique collaboration.

Rosebud In The Winter

 Over the past year teaching artists, Robin Dahlberg and Josee Schryer, have worked with the youth through our partner the Rosebud Boys & Girls Club.  The student photographers have used their cell phones to document their lives under quarantine and more recently as they have coped with the COVID winter.  Joined by teaching artists Amy Lowey and Sanne Vils Axelsen this winter, the ongoing collaboration with 5 Corners Collective presents the winter series from Rosebud Reservation.
