She began her professional music career singing in her family’s band The Sally Mountain Show.

Wisdom mural dedication 

The Anderson Center at Tower View invites community members to a formal dedication and reception for the Plant Wisdom Mural by public artist-in-residence Camila Leiva from 5-6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24. This dedication event with the artist is happening at the mural’s location adjacent to the Del Dankers Pocket Garden in downtown Red Wing. Refreshments will be provided.

Leiva spent the entire month of May 2021 developing the Plant Wisdom Mural project as part of the Anderson Center’s First Step Public Artist Residency Program, which aims to serve as a catalyst for social action and relationship building in Red Wing. The daughter of a Minne­sotan mother and a Chilean father, Leiva is a self-described bridge-builder. “I feel like I am from both places,” Leiva shares. This space of in-betweenness helps her build community across difference, and she brings that to her art practice. Leiva grew up with the Chilean concept of art as a collective process rather than the traditional image of an artist working solo. To her, “The beauty of art is when it’s done in the community.”

Location: 305 Plum St.

Books in the Barn 

The Anderson Center is proud to present Minnesota writer Sun Yung Shin in the Tower View Barn at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28, for a public reading as part of the Books in the Barn series. General Admission tickets are $10 for the public and $5 for Anderson Center members and youth under 18.

Sun Yung will be presenting and reading from her newest book, “The Wet Hex” (Coffee House Press, 2022). Personal and environmental violations form the backdrop against which Sun Yung Shin examines questions of grievability, violence, and responsibility in The Wet Hex. Incorporating sources such as her own archival immigration documents, Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Christopher Columbus’s journals, and traditional Korean burial rituals, Sun Yung explores the ways that lives are weighed and bartered. Smashing the hierarchies of god and humanity, heaven and hell, in favor of indigenous Korean shamanism and animism, The Wet Hex layers an apocalyptic revision of nineteenth-century imagery of the sublime over the present, conjuring a reality at once beautiful and terrible.
