MCAD Art Historian Jessica Dandona says Bobby Rogers' latest show, "The Blacker the Berry," is the best thing she's seen in a while. The show features 10 life-size photographs of elegantly dressed black men and women. Dandona says the images use many of the visual strategies of Renaissance portraiture to create a photographic celebration of black identity. 

  Zeitgeist Community Engagement Director Ryan Bauers is headed to the final episode of "Take It With You," Duluth's homegrown live radio theater show. Bauers says the wry and witty show always features a stellar cast and great live music. 

The final episode? A musical about Thanksgiving. You can see it live on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at The Underground in Duluth, or you can download the podcast. Bauers promises listening to it "will make your life 100 times better."

  McNally Smith College of Music's William Franklin is excited for Cine Latino, a four-day film festival devoted to films of Latin America and Iberia. The festival gets underway tonight at 7 p.m. at St. Anthony Main in Minneapolis with a screening of the Spanish film "Summer 1993." Writer and Director Carla​ ​Simon will be in attendance.
