Residential College in the Arts and Humanities Dean’s Initiative Fund

Artist Edgar Heap of Birds’ residency and proposed instillation will focus on the 1819 Saginaw Treaty that ceded Native land to the U.S. Government—land which eventually became the home of MSU through the Morrill Act establishing Land Grand institutions.

Allowing RCAH students to work closely with Edgar Heap of Birds during his arts residency in RCAH will provide them a meaningful experience working alongside a professional artist as they deeply explore his work through the lens of the humanities.

With your help, our campaign will ensure that RCAH can provide the opportunity to work with Heap of Birds while learning and researching the history of MSU’s land grant and the Native communities that previously resided on the lands on which our campus now sits.

Give to RCAH and help provide our students a meaningful experience!  

Funds raised will make this opportunity a reality for RCAH students. By supporting this campaign, you will be providing students with the necessary resources to have a rich cultural, historical and artistic learning experience with artist Edgar Heap of Birds. Heap of Birds’ art installations are known for their groundbreaking ability to convey messages about native culture, connection and the need for justice, making a learning opportunity with him an invaluable experience for RCAH students.
