Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center of Duluth wears new mural with pride

Posted: Updated:
DULUTH, MN -

A new face is appearing in Duluth's Central Hillside neighborhood.

This mural of a Native American woman is being painted on the bricks of the Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center. 

The center provides housing for people suffering from long-term homelessness and transitional housing for domestic abuse survivors.

The mural's creator says the artwork is designed to evoke conversation among those who look at it. 

"I think it is very relevant that we have a woman up on this wall. We are used to using chief's, you know, for example like this one on my shirt to represent our heritage and our culture, but things are changing. I think this is part of that change that is happening," mural artist, Votan, said.

The mural will be unveiled in September.
