I am planning a Renaissance-themed wedding for Aug. 9 and looking for someone who can do caricatures. The artist we had is unable to come now. I know it is short notice, but if there is anyone who is able to do it we would greatly appreciate it. The reception is in Lake Nebagamon. We want to set up a “Ye Olde Photo” booth, where the guests can get a quick sketch done. If you can do quick sketches of people instead of caricatures, that is OK too.
Glad to see the Ennyman and my colleague, the Dean of the School of Fine Arts at UMD, in these pages. Kathleen Roberts gives the Duluth arts community an immense gift in the labor it takes to make this publication happen.
No, I’m not trying to copy myself. I have a Model 70 Conquerer Spirit Duplicator which I am trying to figure out. I have never used one but am interested in how the machine works and would love to get this one back in action. If anyone could share some knowledge or point me in the direction of some good resources I would greatly appreciate it.
If you are into dark and depressing movies (that take place in Duluth) then come check it out! Screenings are at 7 and 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17, at Zinema 2. I’ll be doing a Q&A after both shows. It recently played to full houses at the Duluth Superior Film Festival and people seemed to dig it. It is unrated, but the MPAA would easily slap an R on it, so keep that in mind. It is very dark.
The sidewalks beside six storm sewer drains in Superior are looking good. Six local artists have painted their artwork and are helping spread the message about stormwater pollution. The locations and more information is at superiorstormwater.blogspot.com. Click on the Storm Drain Art tab. Map brochures are available at the Wisconsin visitor bureau in the Bong Heritage Center, Fairlawn Mansion, Superior Public Library, North End Arts Gallery, and the Superior Wastewater Treatment Plant. Take time to visit the sites for some outdoor public art.
Vincent Gargiulo here with a new short film that I shot in Duluth and Superior last June when I was in town for the Duluth is Horrible premiere. It’s part of my upcoming bigger film, Fantastic but also works as a stand-alone piece. If interested, you can watch and find out more of the bigger film at fearofdisney.com. Enjoy. Rated R for Really Artsy.
Happy Homegrown Duluth! I had to send a contribution from afar. I wanted to premiere my first short film on PDD. It’s a spooky little thing filmed in Duluth during a brief visit I made in 2014. The soundtrack is by myself and Eric Lyman, we record as Pale Wall. This film may be best viewed around 3 a.m. with a warm blanket. Cheers.
If you want this in your collection I have artfully packaged DVDs available. Contact jhuntzinger @ gmail.com
We’re looking for new Homegrown photo banners to run across the top of PDD during the festival. Photos shot at last year’s festival are the best candidates, but if there are compelling images of preparations for this year, I suppose that’s fair game too. For full details on banner submissions, click here. The basic info is the image must be 960 pixels wide by 167 pixels high. The Perfect Duluth Day logo will be added by PDD’s art department. Send them to banners @ perfectduluthday.com.
The Homegrown banners will replace the regular banner photos at the top of the page starting Sunday.
