Where's the best art opening this week?  What shows are closing?  Are there any calls-for-entries anywhere? 

Kate Cavett is the kind of person who wants to read the book, not see the movie.

She says she likes stories "in their original versions," so it's no surprise that this oral historian chose to investigate a neighborhood near where she grew up in a way that "records the voice of the storyteller."

Voices of Rondo: Oral Histories of Saint Paul's Historic Black Community is published by the University of Minnesota Press.

What stands out about a person when they're gone?

Carol Lafavor died in 2011, but her legacy is that of a pioneer in the places where gender, sexuality, social justice, HIV/AIDS awareness and being Native intersect.

March is Women's History month and at the American Indian Community Housing Organization, they are celebrating in a big way.

You can air-condition a movie theater with an artesian well.

Drive-in movies didn't lose their popularity; land just got too expensive.

Naomi Christenson

Lakeside Gallery is celebrating fresh new work by local painter Naomi Christenson with a reception this Saturday, March 3, from 1-3 pm.  Christenson's work is often inspired by patterns in the natural world and although she has produced large scale work, a fresh look at lichen and fungi inspired her to paint these vibrant, miniature patterns on a smaller scale.

Be inspired by this local painter showing at Lakeside Gallery through the month of March. Lakeside Gallery is located in East Duluth at 4431 E Superior Street.

About three years ago, someone at PAVSA (Program to Aid Victims of Sexual Assault) Youth Advisory Board  asked a survivor of sexual exploitation and trafficking to describe themself in one word. 

Cultures define themselves in many ways, frequently with reference to the natural world.

On the surface, it's hard to see that as a bad thing.

But as we delve further into ecology ("a branch of science concerned with the interrelationship of organisms and their environments, the totality or pattern of relations between organisms and their environment"), is the stumbling block to finding answer the way we see nature ... or just human beings?
 

Last month Adam Swanson opened a new show called “Art and Science” at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe in Duluth.

“Art and Science” expands on his common threads of humans, animals and their coexistence in the world.  This new body of work brings in ideas of energy, sustainability, machines and how humans have the ability to change their impact in the world.  Swanson said “The more we learn about our surroundings, where we came from and who we are, the more likely we will thrive in a universe of endless possibilities.”

Scott Maxwell
