This week on Art Hounds: A major new mural at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, a Fergus Falls exhibit about mental health, and "Nadia."
Christopher Atkins of the Minnesota Museum of American Art recommends paying a visit to the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where a new mural has just been installed on the south side of the main campus building. Created by the artistic duo "FAILE," Atkins says it's a riot of color and form that draws you in from afar, and impresses you up close.
Lifelong music lover Ruth Murphy is enthralled by the Bakken Trio's new work "Nadia," which combines music and theater to tell the story of Nadia Boulanger, the famed French music educator. Boulanger instructed such wide-ranging composers as Astor Piazzola, Aaron Copland, Philip Glass and Quincy Jones. Performances are at 4 p.m. Sunday and 7:30 p.m. Monday at the MacPhail Center for Music.
Multimedia artist Heather Zinger is impressed with the quality of art making its way to Fergus Falls. The Kaddatz Galleries are hosting an exhibit about mental health called "Mindful." Zinger says, as an artist, she appreciates how art can facilitate difficult conversations and help convey feelings that are beyond words. The show continues through Oct. 7.
