Former Black River Falls resident Casey Brown and member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, received an Emmy Saturday night in Chicago for The Discover Wisconsin & Ho-Chunk Nation video “Exploring the Artistic Process of Truman Lowe” The video centers around Truman Lowe, Ho-Chunk member originally from Black River Falls, whose love of art took him on a path which involved being a professor in the UW system over the years, as well as working with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian. According to Brown, Lowe was very active with student life at the university. The Center of the Arts at UW LaCrosse was renamed the Truman Lowe Center for the Arts, the first UW building named for a Ho-Chunk person.
Brown was excited to work on the project through a partnership the Ho-Chunk Nation has with Discover Wisconsin.
Though the award is an honor, Brown states that the impact of the video is more rewarding.
