Art and the Big River
Our friends at Friends of the Mississippi River announce an exhibition opening next week:
‘Seeing the Big River’ — FMR artist-in-residence at Mill City
Thursday, January 13, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Mill City Museum, downtown Minneapolis riverfront
Please join FMR artist-in-residence Peter L. Johnson at the opening of his exhibit “Seeing the Big River” at Mill City Museum, Thursday, January 13, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Peter’s work dares you to see the devastating beauty in our relationship with the Mississippi River. While the exhibit will be on display through mid-May, “Hazardous Alchemy,” the paintings Peter created with the Big River in Father Hennepin Park this fall and featured in this Star Tribune video, will only be on display opening night. Peter will also offer remarks or “perform” in front of his work at 7:00 p.m.
We’re always interested in hearing about and promoting artistic expression that engages our communities with our rivers. Send us more to publicize!
