I spent tonight walking from art to art, from food to food, from friend to friend — the midpoint of an art week.
I know it takes an army to make something like this happen, but the part of the army I saw was my colleague Dana Mattice, who is doing amazing work making the DAI even more of a presence in the arts in Duluth than it already had been — and that is saying something.
Walking the show was Ashley Kolka, the grants manager of the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, Kenneth Marunowski, local painter, Ed Newman, arts columnist and fiction writer, Sarah LaChance Adams, philosopher, Claire Kirch, author… what a crowd at both the DAI and the companion show at North Shore Bank of Commerce. The Bank hosted an amazing collection of art as well, I might add, as the tastiest chocolates I have had all year.
As I walked home, I stopped by the Wolf/Flow exhibit at the Zeitgeist. Still worth a view.
Most significant for me, LadySlipper performed. They are mesmerizing to watch, to be clear, but as a man who weeps when he hears the tango, the music to which they dance, with its mournful sound… oh, my god. I melt.
Prove Opening Friday. See you there?
