During the dog days of summer, many Minnesotans find themselves asking the same questions: “How can I spend the last warm evenings before the endless winter begins?” and “Where is the nearest patio to have a beer and relax with friends?” For the first three Thursdays in August, the Walker has an answer: Pop Remix. Located on the Walker’s terraces, Pop Remix features an eclectic mix of live music, film screenings, and art activities — all inspired by the remarkable exhibition International Pop. Best of all? It’s free.
Pop Remix was certainly the place to be last Thursday, August 13: the terraces were packed with people enjoying beautiful views of the skyline and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden at dusk. The crowds parted for models parading through the terraces during the fashion show, showing off the works of designers Emma Berg and Christian Joy. Inside, partygoers watched Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable with the Velvet Underground and created their own psychedelic Liquid Light Show. Towards the end of the night, local band Wolf Lords cooled the crowd down, while DJ Adora Tokyo started a full-fledged dance party on the roof of the Walker.
What are you waiting for? Say goodbye to summer in the best way possible: join us for the last Pop Remix on August 20.
