CANCELLED: Artist Talk: Sky Hopinka

We apologize for the inconvenience, this event has been cancelled.

The health and safety of Mia visitors, volunteers, and staff is always our highest priority. While Mia has not been directly affected by COVID-19, we have decided to cancel all events, activities, and tours through March 26, 2020, based on public health officials’ recommendations for social distancing.

If you’ve already reserved a ticket, we will automatically refund the cost of your ticket(s) to the original form of payment. Mia will be working over the next few days to process all refunds. If you paid with a credit card, you can expect to see a deposit by March 20. If you paid by check or cash, you will receive a check by March 26.

Please be assured we are monitoring the situation carefully and are committed to being responsive to and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health.

Though events are cancelled, the museum does remain open. We are taking precautionary measures, including disinfecting public and high-traffic areas multiple times daily. In addition, we have temporarily closed our Family Center, removed touch screens, and suspended the Art Carts program — which contains reusable props and teaching tools that are handled by many visitors — to minimize shared contact.

Thank you for your understanding.

For the most up-to-date information on Mia’s response to COVID-19, please continue to follow our website at, or our Facebook or Twitter updates.

Join us for an evening with filmmaker and artist Sky Hopinka. His practice addresses Indigenous homeland and landscape, languages as containers of culture, memory, and the play between the known and the unknowable. Hopkina will discuss his artistic practice, including his exhibition at Mia (March 12–July 19, 2020).

Sky Hopinka is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation and a descendant of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians. In 2019, he was a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University, and a Sundance Art of Nonfiction fellow. His work has been featured at the ImagineNATIVE Media + Arts Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Sundance, LACE, the Whitney Biennial, and the Front Triennial. Hopinka is an assistant professor in film production at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, B.C.
