Day of Caring - Art Storm

September 5, 2019  1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Thanks to everyone who helped out with Art Storm! Watch the video below to learn more.

The United Way of the Black Hills' Day of Caring is a fundraising campaign with a community-wide focus on providing a helping hand. This day brings together thousands of caring volunteers with agencies and community projects for one day of focused energy.

The Journey Museum and Learning Center is hosting "Art Storm," a collaboration with the Dahl Arts Center that connects art, culture and science together. An art team will paint a wall in our parking lot, and community members can watch while enjoying great music by DJ Cruz!
Wakinyan Luke Chief - "Chief" - Chief is a 26-year-old Oglala Lakota Tribal Member.

He was born in Northern California where he lived until the age of 23. He moved to Rapid City 3 years ago with his wife Anna.

"Both of my parents were artists, but I didn’t really become an artist myself until I found graffiti when I was 12 years old. Through my love of graffiti, I began to appreciate, understand, and practice different styles of art. I work full-time, and I paint graffiti whenever I can. I make mixed media art and take commission art projects on the side."

Jeremy Fields - "Sadat"-  Fields is a descendent of the Kitkehaki band of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma, as well as the Ties the Bundle clan of the Crow Tribe of Montana, and the Chickasaw Tribe of Oklahoma.

A self-taught artist of multiple disciplines, he is an accomplished muralist, painter, beadworker, photographer and graphic designer. His work is centered around cultural aesthetics, always aiming to communicate lessons and stories through his expression. Throughout his upbringing and travels, he has been heavily influenced by the numerous tribes he’s encountered and their respective craftsmanship, which has allowed him to produce work that resonates cross-culturally. 

His work is centered around creating visual interpretations of indigenous philosophy as a means of cultural preservation and to bring traditional wisdom to present context by combining traditional motifs with modern techniques and design styles.

Derek "Focus" Smith - "Focus" -  Smith is Standing Rock (Hunkpapa Lakota) from Fort Yates, North Dakota and Navajo (Dine') from Arizona.

He is a self-taught graffiti artist who found his roots in Salt Lake City when he was 14. Smith takes his life lessons and transmutes them through his work in the community through projects, murals, and activities that bring people together and celebrate the common unity in each individual.

Smith believes there to be a healing power in any and all artwork. These characteristics of love, generosity, fortitude, courage, and hope are inherent in each person, and it is in collectively working towards the helping and healing of one another that people grow and share what they've learned. Murals are just one facet of this work.
