  • Designed by social practice artist and community organizer Su Legatt, DISH is an event-based creative research project focused on mining rural Minnesota culture by sharing and recording personal moments that collectively define this region’s diverse culture.   Participants bring an ancestral or family dish to the event. Each dish is archived through photography and the collection of recipe cards. These will be shared publicly online and through future exhibitions and events.   During their…
  • Su Legatt posted a new Artwork Minnesota Nickel
    The expression "Minnesota Nice" refers to the somewhat passive nature of upper Midwesterners; the tendency to work hard, help a neighbor, or spend a little extra time in conversation. However, as more and more people leave the region or get caught up in modern life, and prefer to communicate via text or email, it seems that this mannerism is either in the decline or never existed. This project is designed to challenge the "Minnesota Nice" mindset by asking participants to share this wooden …
  • Su Legatt updated the Artwork Hand Picked
  • As the towns across Minnesota start to fade, I'm trying to capture the beauty and history of each one. These images are one town of an ongoing project. Each city has its own aesthetic and technical processes. Each one visualizing the ethereal moment we are currently a part of. Hopefully, this will show the unique qualities of each town but suggest their slow fade. 
  • Su Legatt updated the Artwork My Minnesota
    This collection of cards is a celebration of Minnesota culture and history. Each card partners a photograph that captures a personal memory of a rural Minnesotan with a fact about Minnesota. These cards are currently on sale throughout Minnesota or by contacting the artist. To contribute an image and add your Minnesota memory to the collection, please send an email to the artist. 
  • Drawing influence from the historic Moorhead power plant and the Red River, this project aims to join the past with the present and future and to provide a space for the community to gather and celebrate its legacy. The design includes a rolling series of berms, a collection of beautiful benches, various gardens, a water feature, a warming house, and an earthen amphitheater. A key element of this design is the perennial garden featuring plants and stories collected from the people of Moorhead. …
  • Su Legatt updated the Artwork The Dish Project
    Potlucks are a simple custom that seems to transcend political affiliations, economic status, religious orientation, and all other social demographics. While the culture of rural communities is constantly changing, the simple gathering of humans around food, is not. However, the influence of technology as a driving force for communication and professional lifestyles requiring repeated moves have altered our ability for casual discourse at an accelerated pace, directly affecting our immediate com…
  • Of all the things we inherit from our parents, there is arguably nothing more influential and lasting than the advice they have acquired over the years.  ​ Collected through internet crowd sourcing, each of these pieces shares a simple yet memorable bit of guidance from a Minnesota Grandmother; screen printed onto fabric collected during an annual local clean up week and finished with a crocheted doily border. These quirky wall pieces balance the sentimentality of this precious knowledge…
  • Su Legatt updated the Artwork Private/Public
    As our society becomes more and more engrossed with technology as a form of communication, we are learning how this affects our inter-personal relationships. No group is affected by this more than teens; they grew up with these gadgets at their finger tips and have brains that are still developing logic and reasoning skills. They're also still learning to understand body language and social cues. This project works with three high schools to explore how technology has affected their lives and ab…
  • Su Legatt updated the Artwork Significant Curtain
    As we go through life, we form very special attachments to spacific places. Our memories and emotions will always be tied to these locations. This project recognizes the importance of these places as remembered by the person connected to them. This curtain is an opportunity for a viewer to physically enter into a significant environment of the artist. A single line of text around the exterior explains its emotional importance. It provides an escape from the gallery; similar to the artist's relat…
