DULUTH, MN -

A ribbon cutting took place Wednesday at the American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO) in Duluth.  

Dr. Robert Powless stood with the help of his walker and cut the ribbon for a center named after him. 

Earlier Wednesday, crews hung the brand new sign above the door. 

The new cultural center features an art gallery, among many other amenities. 

"We've transformed it into an art gallery, it is a musical venue it is just all of these different things so it just seemed appropriate to name it after somebody who has been contributing a lot to the transformations that took place in this space," Arts and Cultural Program Coordinator, Moira Villiard, said. 

The cultural center is located at the corner of 2nd Ave. W and 2nd St. in Duluth.
