Upcoming Events


MMA Exhibit: ‘Jonathan Thunder: Maamawi’

The Michigan Museum of Art is hosting the exhibit Jonathan Thunder: Maamawi through January 8, 2023.

Thunder creates paintings and animated films that speak to popular culture, modern society, and his Ojibwe heritage, exploring the ongoing contrasts and fractures in our society. Inspired by imagery from media, cartoons, entertainment, and Ojibwe traditions, he offers his own unique, often surreal take on the “good side and less than pristine side of the human journey.”

“Maamawi” is the Ojibwe word for “together,” and addresses shared humanity.

Jonathan Thunder  is a member of the Red Lake Ojibwe Nation.

His paintings and films were included in the 2020-2021 exhibition The Art of People: Contemporary Anishinaabe Artists by Muskegon Museum of Art and Grand Valley State University Art Gallery (with guest curator Jason Quigno).
