Extended hour and reduced price for the Smithsonian Send-off!

Duluth Art Institute
Friday, July 16th
5 to 7 pm
The Depot
Admission: $6

By popular demand the Duluth Art Institute is hosting a special send-off to say Bon Voyage to the Smithsonian Exhibit “In Focus: National Geographic Greatest Portraits” with music by Kip Jones and half-price admission to the exhibit! Don’t miss the last chance to see the most popular art exhibit of the summer before it makes the long trek to Texas — the next stop on its tour.

Kip Jones will send off the exhibit in National Geographic style. He describes his music as “traditional fiction” or “experimental folk”; that is, traditional music from regions or people that don’t exist. Having dragged his violin across the Americas from Cape Breton to Tierra del Fuego, and across Asia from Kanyakumari to Jeollanamdo, years of travel have shaped his music into something both structurally foreign and profoundly American.

Everyone is welcome. The exhibit’s official last day is Sunday, July 18. The Depot is open every day 9:30 – 6 pm. Call or email the Duluth Art Institute – 218-733-7560 or [email protected] for more information.

Organized by the Smithsonian Institution, this exhibit is supported locally by a grant from the Depot Foundation, sponsored by Cartier Agency and in partnership with the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center

I'm so there. Was going to stop by after work Friday anyway to make sure I saw the exhibit, and I love Kip Jones. What are you a mind reader?
