Patina Park, executive director of the Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center, says you need to go over to All My Relations Gallery in Minneapolis to see "Bring Her Home: Stolen Daughters of Turtle Island." The art calls attention to the many murdered or missing indigenous women, and the families still waiting for their return. On view through April 20.
Duluth theater artist Kirsten Hambleton highly recommends seeing Wise Fool Theater's production of "Treasure Island" before it closes March 18. Hambleton took her squirmy, high-energy 6-year-old, and he was enthralled from start to finish. Plus, all kids get a copy of the book. Performances are at Lincoln Park Middle School auditorium in Duluth.
Actor and singer Jim Ahrens is looking forward to Skylark Opera Theatre's production of the chamber opera "As One" by Laura Kaminsky. It tells the story of Hannah, a transsexual woman, and her journey of self-discovery. Her part is sung both by a bass baritone and a mezzo soprano, and Ahrens says the music is beautiful. He says while it seems like a very specific story, it touches on universal themes of identity and personal growth. Performances run March 16 through March 25 at North Garden Theater in St. Paul.
