Art Hounds: Faeries, fanfare and photography


This weekend marks the opening of the annual Minnesota Renaissance Festival. Back in the old days stalls would serve a slab of bread, a thick slice of cheese and a sausage, washed down with cider. Now you have your choice of fajitas, coconut shrimp, or a chicken teriyaki croissant (?!?!). Opening weekend events include a bellydancing contest, an arabian horse show and a martial arts demonstration.

20% Theatre Company presents “After Juliet,” the story of what happens after Romeo and Juliet take their lives. The play’s written by Sharman MacDonald, and she supposedly wrote the play at the prompting of her daughter, actress Kiera Knightley. The show runs August 20 – 30 at Sabes Jewish Community Center in Minneapolis.

Working through the Kulture Klub Collaborative, photographer Lauri Lyons and local teenagers are creating Home Is Where You Make It, a mobile exhibition of large-scale portraits of homeless youth. You can check out the portraits, and here Lyons talk, tonight at the Walker Art Center.

And on Friday, The Cabooze hosts a tribute to late pop icon Michael Jackson, featuring performances by JD Steele, Fred Steele, Ray Covington, Brandon Commodore, O’Dell, and more….
