Where's Art? with Annie Dugan: when the art's so good you can smell it

If you've ever wanted to sit around a bonfire on the shore of Lake Superior, maybe take in some live music; maybe listen to some storytelling - your chance is tomorrow night, and you don't even have to put on bug dope.

Producers/directors Daniel Benoit and Robert Lee are calling it "an immersive livestream on the shore," and it will feature binaural audio, projections, storytelling by artist Jonathan Thunder and music from Feeding Leroy.

Meanwhile artist Moira Villiard lit up the night and the community with her animation art over the weekend. Madweyaashkaa: Waves Can be Heard was projected onto the back wall of the Washington Recreational Center and synced with a soundscape of music by Lyz Jaakola (Fond du Lac Band of Ojibwe) and a recorded narrative by Dakota/Ojibway First Nation elder Millie Richard.

Then Saturday at 5:00pm, artist Jeff Boothe of Portland, OR pops up for a showing of his "Sculptural Assembled Paintings."

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
