Art Hounds: Week of May 21by Chris Roberts, Minnesota Public Radio
Each week Minnesota Public Radio News asks three people from the Minnesota arts scene to be "Art Hounds." Their job is to step outside their own work and hunt down something exciting that's going on in local arts.
Felicia Glidden is a sculptor and the outreach and education coordinator at the Franconia Sculpture Park. She is looking forward to taking in the Norval Morisseau Late Paintings exhibit at Bockley Gallery. Morisseau is considered one of the grandfathers of Native American contemporary art. The show runs through June 27, with an opening reception this Friday evening.
Steven Renderos is the Media Project Coordinator for the Chicano Studies Department at the University of Minnesota and also a DJ in the Twin Cities. He'll be at Big Quarters' CD release show this Saturday at the Triple Rock Social Club. "From the Home of Brown Babies and White Mothers" is the duo's second full-length album of socially conscious hip hop music.
Sharon DeMark is the arts program officer for The St. Paul Foundation. She's excited to see Tony Kushner's "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures" at the Guthrie Theater. The play runs through June 28, and is making its national debut here as part of the Guthrie's "Kushner Celebration."
