It’s spring! Yay! Creative energy is in the air all over northern Minnesota! In this segment, we continue our conversations about first Friday arts events with updates on new exhibits in Brainerd and Bemidji and a conversation with singer songwriter Jeremy Messersmith who has been working with students young and old in the Brainerd area this week. Jeremy will perform at Central Lakes College tonight at 7pm!
Every first Friday of the month we check in with Katie Marshall from the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids to find out what will be happening on First Friday. Katie did not disappoint today! Artists in the attic, reading challenges, live music, a printmaking workshop and and exhibit that consists of 98 pieces, each less than 10″ in size! All that and a soon-to-be ice cream truck make this First Friday in May pretty magical!
May is Foster Awareness month. Hoang Murphy joins the crew to talk about his personal experience in the foster system and how his organization, Foster Advocates, is giving the power to the young people living this often-invisible reality. Guest: Hoang Murphy, Foster Advocates
