The High Visibility podcast welcomes artists, culture bearers, and thinkers from across rural America and Indian Country to share their work and their perspectives on cultural life beyond the city. The High Visibility podcast is produced by Art of the Rural and Plains Art Museum.

Individual episodes can be found below, and across popular podcast platforms. 


Episode 1: 
Karl Unnasch
available February 24, 2021

From his home and studio in Pilot Mound, Minnesota, Karl Unnasch creates public works, often incorporating stained glass, wood, metal and other materials. Through placing rural narratives within the ecological, social, and historical traditions of each site, the artist creates structures with playful, nostalgic, and often provocative allusions. While many contemporary artists have incorporated vernacular elements of their lived, rural experience into their creative vision, few produce work that so subtly upends cultural expectations of subject matter and form.
