Main Gallery

Reception: Friday, June 8, 6:00–9:00 p.m. with catering by the Sioux Chef
Community Day: July (date TBD), 1:00–4:00 p.m.

Featuring hands-on art-making activities, tea and honey tastings, and an MCAD-Whittier Bake-On Contest juried by Amy Theilen, author of Give a Girl a Knife and The New Midwestern Table.  Taking its title from the study of food-related behavior and patterns of membership in community, Foodways highlights how contemporary Minnesota-based artists use the subject of food to reveal patterns of consumption, processes of acculturation, and the power of memory. The breadth of artists and ideas—presented in media including painting, drawing, video, sculpture, and photography—provide an insight into the state’s cultural diversity and our increasingly interwoven communities.

Reception: Friday, June 8, 6:00–9:00 p.m.

Instagram and the Artist’s Studio explores the varying uses of Instagram as evinced by ten different artists and artist collectives. Their identities as local, regional, national, or international artists becomes almost irrelevant as the collapsing of geographic barriers is one of the most profound outcomes of Instagram’s global proliferation.
