sharondemark.jpgSharon DeMark has gotten in the habit of going to the annual Flint Hills International Children’s Festival at the Ordway in St. Paul, and her family is usually in tow. Sharon, the arts program officer for the St. Paul Foundation, says the five dollar ticket price for some incredible international children’s acts is amazing, as is the number of free performances happening in Rice Park. The festival runs June 1-6.

Jean is a Duluth theater artist and music buff who describes Sound Unseen as a festival of films about music from around the world, coupled with live music, of course. Sound Unseen has migrated north after being a mainstay in Minneapolis for the last decade.

Ben is particularly interested in the “Works in Progress” series, June 3 – 6, in which five artists will each have 15 minutes to give audiences a glimpse at new work they’re developing.
