LIGHT BULB MOMENT: Ideas were sparked for L. Kelly Lindquist at left, president of Artspace, in a conversation with UTTC Tribal Arts Instructor Butch Thunderhawk. The encounter occurred during Lindquist’s February 4 visit to learn about the arts at United Tribes. The 30 year old organization that was founded in Minneapolis is now the nation’s leading nonprofit developer for the arts, owning and operating 23 major projects in 17 cities and 12 states. Artspace focuses on the space needs of artists and promotes the benefits that accrue to communities that invest in their artists.
