This week on Art Hounds: songs from Red Lake Nation, Hmong migration, and a pop-up exhibition in Grand Marais, Minn.

Molly Huber, former assistant curator at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, went to a great exhibition called "Singing Our History: People and Places of Red Lake Nations" with both of her sons. Huber says the exhibit captures the feeling of contemporary life on the Ojibwe reservation. The exhibition runs through Feb. 13 at the University of Minnesota's Nash Gallery.

Actor Youa Hai Thao is looking forward to "Every Day is a Sunny Day." Thao says the dance-drama follows the rhythms of Hmong migration from Southeastern Asia to the United States. The one-time performance will be staged at 7 p.m. Jan. 30 at the Ordway Concert Hall.

Linda Kratt, executive director of Visit Cook County, loves the "Winter Arts Festival: Outdoor Painting and Photography" pop-up exhibition in Grand Marais. Kratt says that the painters have a way of interpreting light so differently that winter becomes an embraced experience. The final day of the Winter Arts Festival exhibition is from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday at the Grand Marais Art Colony.
