The Duluth Homegrown Music Festival brings out photographers in droves and at every show this week you'll see music fans pulling out their phones in dark barroom lighting to snap a pic of the band of the hour.  It's such a tradition there is an annual photo show and a field guide full of these captured moments. 

Plus there is a lot of filming going on; enter Manny Villanueva.  A photographer, videographer and former news cameraman; Villanueva has been working on a 20th Anniversary Homegrown documentary with live footage, photos and interviews with the key players.

Prove Gallery

This Friday April 27, the 20th Anniversary Homegrown Anniversary Illustration Show opens at Prøve Gallery with a reception 7 - 10 pm.  This is an exciting addition to Ancillary Arts Night that has been a part of the usual Homegrown schedule.  Local artists were invited to create fantastic illustrations of Homegrown luminaries, who have helped create the success and longevity of the Duluth Homegrown Music Festival.

Two artists in the show join us on Radio gallery this week: UMD Professor David Short and art student Joanna Harms.

Zoongide'win (zoon GED eh win) means "strong-hearted" in Ojibwe, and it's also the title of an exhibition this week of maps, manuscripts and the resilience of the people who were here long before Europeans arrived.
