Visual Art – Public Art & Mixed Media
Seitu Ken Jones is a multidisciplinary artist, advocate and maker based in St. Paul, MN who has been tending the soil of community through art for more than 40 years. Engaging with Red Wing though the Anderson Center’s First Step Public Artist Residency program, Seitu’s work channels the spirit of radical social movements into experiences that foster critical conversations and nurture more just and vibrant communities. He is broadly recognized as a dynamic collaborator and a creative force for civic engagement.
At the Anderson Center, Seitu is worked with Red Wing community members to design “Stand in the Shadows,” a series of public artworks that recalls and remembers the historic African American presence in Red Wing & Goodhue County to be installed in downtown Red Wing in 2024 and beyond.
