Commission: St. Joseph’s Indian School in Chamberlain

Brother Mickey is not your typical artist. His unique perspective and abilities as a religious, writer, and speaker, allow him to create art for others to appreciate, but also to encourage those who hear him to open their minds to let beauty enter, and allow them to become part of it. Brother Mickey’s latest adventure has taken him to St. Joseph Indian School in South Dakota, where he created a mural which included St. Katherine Tekakwitha, the Blessed Mother, and Black Elk, whose cause is up for cannonization. Much research went into designing the images and much excitement was generated at the school, as everyone passing by was invited to pick up a paint brush for a few minutes.
