Where's Art: A Full Head of STEAM

Although the music of Homegrown has faded into the past, the world of visual arts has a robust week ahead.

On Wednesday, at the Duluth Art Institute's Lincoln Park building, Adam Swanson will be giving a free talk from 5-7pm in the Great Room. The conversation will revolve around pollinator species. Pat Thomas, who has over 30 years of experience gardening for inspects will also be speaking. “It’s a really great pairing," says Annie Dugan. "Art and science.”

Keeping on theme, the Depot in Duluth is hosting their annual STEAM Festival from10am-2pm on Saturday, May 13th. The event is geared toward elementary school children and will highlight the connections between art and science. “So much about our science brain is connected to our arts brain,” says Dugan. Festivalgoers can expect programming from various local groups. “There are so many organizations that are involved."

At Siiviis Gallery on Friday, May 12th, Lori Franklin opens "Hidden Realms". The event goes from 5-7pm. The work explores realms of the outdoors as well as that of the imagination.

From 2-5pm on Saturday, the Joseph Nease Gallery is hosting a reception and artist talk. The talk begins at 3pm and includes artists Tara Austin, Kathy McTavish, Joellyn Rock, and Tim White. “If you think of visual arts as pattern recognition, there’s some pattern recognition between the four,” says Dugan of the artists.

On Sunday at noon, Kirsten Aune is hosting a Mother's Day Chai - an offering of chai while highlighting the textile work of Aune and the linen apparel of Patty Sampson.

"It's a good one," says Dugan of the upcoming week in art.
