ronnie.jpgPainter and Graphic designer Ronnie Droher says what’s most exciting about “Constellation, A Backyard Art Exhibition” is that it takes the experiential phase of art out of the gallery and into the homes and living spaces of artists. “Constellation” features the work of more than a dozen DIY artists and ‘creatives’ in the south Minneapolis neighborhoods of Seward, Philips, and Powderhorn. It’s happening May 27th – 29th.

Beth color.jpgBeth Comeaux didn’t know what to expect when she went to see “Got It Made” at Pillsbury House Theater. She came away very pleasantly surprised. A musician and development officer with the Minnesota Opera, Beth says “Got it Made” is a sharp, satirical musical about the modern American workplace with clever, sometimes hilarious songs written in diverse musical styles. On stage through June 12.

tschida.jpgLook! Up at the Lawson building in downtown St. Paul. Are they pigeons? Superheroes? No, says Christine Tschida, agent for touring performance groups, it’s “Project Bandaloop.” Project Bandaloop is a aerial dance group that stages breath-taking dances on the sides of buildings, bridges, towers and cliffs. As part of the Ordway Center for Peforming Arts “Flint Hills Childrens Festival,” the group will hang suspended from the top of the Lawson building and dance, Wednesday June 1 at noon, through Sunday, June 5.
