Jim Denomie, internationally known Native American artist from Minnesota, dies at 66
Denomie, an Ojibwa of the Lac Courte Oreilles Band, was known for his powerful, beautiful, whimsical, satirical paintings and murals – narratives built on his heritage. His work is in every major Twin Cities museum and is on display throughout the United States and in Germany. He was born in 1955 in Hayward, Wis., and grew up in Minneapolis. He died of cancer.
