Mn Artists, the Walker’s platform for local artists, brings its online network live and into the museum. Join Northern Minnesota farmer, educator, and curator Annie Dugan to explore the intersections of agriculture, land, and artistic practice using the metaphor of the hedgerow as a way to question how art can live outside an exhibition. The evening will include mark-making meditations, walking tours, projections, and meanderings that invite chance and wild growth into the museum. Connect with local artists of all disciplines and engage with the questions driving the MN arts community.
About the Artists
Annie Dugan is an independent curator, educator, and farmer. She teaches at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth and the University of Wisconsin, Superior, where she also manages the Kruk campus gallery. Dugan lives on an organic vegetable farm in Northern Minnesota and uses her rural community spaces for artistic interventions including a root cellar concert, a pop-up tent with interactive projection, and a lab space for visual experimentation. In 2004, she founded the Free Range Film Festival in her barn. The festival screens independent documentaries, animation, and experimental work and serves as a catalyst for creative production.
