Where's Art: Indoor and Outdoor Options
It's cold outside. Whether or not you're up for leaving the comfort of your couch, Annie Dugan has some art events for you.
The Duluth Art Institute and UMD have partnered to create a virtual exhibition highlighting the Emerging Photographers Program at the University of Minnesota Duluth. The exhibit offers opportunities to connect artist with the community. ”It’s a whole range of art from portraiture to landscape work,” says Dugan. You can enjoy the exhibit from the comfort of home by visiting the DAI website.
After that, bundle up for a couple of openings this weekend. This Friday at the Zeitgeist atrium is the opening of “The Life, The Work, The Fight: Black History in Duluth.” The reception goes from 4-6pm on February 3rd. On Saturday at AICHO is the opening of “Aanjitoon: Anishinaabe Art Through a Contemporary Lens”. The exhibit features the work of photographer Nedahness Greene and digital artist Caitlin Newago. Doors open at 6pm. The exhibit runs through March.
And if the cold doesn't faze you at all, head outside! The Lake Superior Ice Festival was this past weekend. As a result, 24 ice sculptures can be found throughout Superior, WI. An interactive map can be found on the Ice Festival website.
