Walker Art Center
June 9– 10, 2012
Minneapolis, May 25, 2012—Walker Art Center is keeping the lights on again for this year’s Northern Spark festival with a gathering inspired by the convivial, collaborative, and ephemeral atmosphere of Open Field. Gather around the campfire for concerts and storytelling performances by local writers and musicians. Grab a glow stick and join in a NIGHTclub edition of Drawing Club, or stroll around the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and Walker campus, where you’ll stumble upon artist interventions and other surprises. Inside, the exhibitions are on view for free and feature exclusive, one-night-only viewings of artworks from the collection, while whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir, an experimental, ever-changing film noir from artist Eve Sussman, screens in the Lecture Room. Fuel up for the night with the Garden Grill by D’Amico’s food and beverages, including s’mores, before crashing on the hill to watch the sun rise over the city skyline. All activities and gallery admission are free.
