This week: public painting, outdoor concerts and fireworks


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

This month AJ Atwater will be doing a 30″ by 30″ painting in public starting today in a storefront window at Perry Framing, downtown Duluth.

Tuesday at the Zinema 2 the Explorers Club presents a film shot in northern Minnesota – “Pollywogs.”

This summer Glensheen Mansion is hosting a series of free Concerts by the Lake starting this Wednesday with Sentimental Journey.

This Fourth of July there’s a lot going on before the fireworks. You can go to Bayfront for a free concert, check out the free Folk Music Festival in the Fitger’s Courtyard (which runs through Saturday), or see a Huskies baseball game at the Wade.

The Twin Ports Bridge Festival at Bayfront this Saturday includes Cloud Cult, Snöbarn, Mason Jennings and more.

And, we haven’t mentioned it lately, but every Sunday is Fencing with Kris at the Lotus Center taught by Duluth’s own preternaturally young Legolas lookalike, Kris “Lithis” Nelson.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know.

PS – I’m going to be incommunicado as I will be on monastic retreat for the next two weeks so the very cool and capable Emily Haavik will be doing the Monday morning communiques in my absence. Have fun, Emily!
