For the Seeing Green show, Susan Simensky Bietila (who co-organized Drawing Resistance and frequently contributes to World War III Illustrated) created the mural “28 Years of People Power” dedicated to the 28-year grassroots campaign and Native and non-Native alliance that defeated the proposed Crandon mine on Wisconsin’s Wolf River. This alliance won an historic victory against one the most powerful mining corporations in the world. This victory is celebrated world wide and the mural is meant to continue to draw attention to this vital history and the need to stay active in ensuring that the river stays protected. The mural will be displayed at Woodland Pattern and then will travel.
