In this Issue: Feeling Minnesota
This month, mnartists.org and Minnesota Playlist are joining forces to publish “Feeling Minnesota,” a series of essays exploring the interplay between our region’s distinct climate, landscape, cultural history and the art made by those who live here. In the coming weeks, look for pieces by Quinton Skinner, Marya Hornbacher, Lightsey Darst, Andy Sturdevant, and Camille LeFevre, who will weigh in with their thoughts on what makes for peculiarly Minnesotan styles of theater, dance, visual art, and architecture.
- HOMEPAGE: Andy Sturdevant takes issue with the Walker’s salon-style show, Benches and Binoculars, and Lightsey Darst profiles elusive dance up-and-comer, Emily Johnson. Other highlights include a conversation on improvisation with Fat Kid Wednesdays bassist Adam Linz and a mnLIT original poem by What Light grand prize-winner, Ben Weaver
