Rabbett Before Horses is a special one-hour PBS Wisconsin documentary presenting an in-depth portrait of the Northern Wisconsin-based artist, from his rock band days on the Fillmore stage in San Francisco, to his return to his ancestral home on the Red Cliff Reservation, through the advanced mathematical theories scrolling through his mind, to the belief among his fellow Ojibwe that his intricate paintings come from his dreams.

The Tweed Museum of Art, PBS Wisconsin, WDSE•WRPT and Wisconsin Public Radio partnered to bring you Rabbett Before Horses, a PREMIERE screening of a documentary-biography of the Wisconsin artist.

Join us February 4 at 5:30 pm at the Tweed Museum of Art for a reception, with hors d'oeuvres and light refreshments, followed by the screening at Montague Lecture Hall 70, University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) at 7 pm (seating begins at 6:45 pm).

Let us know through RSVP on Eventbrite if you plan to attend either event or both.

Alternate snow date is February 11.

Free and open to the public. Limited Seating. Please RSVP here.
