It's pretty much "all Homegrown all the time" this week in Duluth - even for artists.  At the Duluth Art Institute, it's the two part Homegrown Photo show and at the opening reception tonight at the Red Herring, be one of the first 30 or so people in the door and the DAI will give you a disposable camera to carry with you all week to record your Homegrown impressions and experiences.

Jamie Ratliff talks the confluence of sports and art this week ...  and the Homegrown Music Festival is hatching a couple of photography shows:  the Homegrown Photography Show and "Photo Stupor."  The latter is a chance for folks to get a disposable camera and take it everywhere during Homegrown week to, in the words of the organizers, document "what really happened during this year's festival."

  Opening tonight at Zeitgeist is a new exhibit by area photographer Henry Roberts.

Artist Sue Rauschenfels has a show opening this evening at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe; likewise Shawna Gilmore's Land of Wonder and Ken Bloom's Public Domain open this week at the Duluth Art Institute.
