This commemorative exhibition presents artwork by the Gustafson family, showing how beadwork and hand-made items come from an ecology of relationships and love. Their bold designs are part of a dialect of beadwork deeply rooted within Anishinaabe culture and way of being. The Gustafson’s teach us that the power of creating helps with the process of grief and loss. This exhibition honours their son and brother Piitwewetam (Rolling Thunder) also known as Jesse Gustafson.
