"At the end of the day, these connections serve as hope"

Japan. Russia. Canada. Kurdistan. Just a few of the countries whose relationship with the United States has become increasingly fraught in the last months, but also just a few of the countries with whom Duluth enjoys a sister-city relationship. The chance for people here to connect to the wider world, to meet people who are simultaneously different from and the same as they -- those relationships could be seen as the antidote to fear.

"My time on the RV Falkor has been unbelievable so far. Amazing people, inspiring science, and breathtaking ocean as far as the eye can see. I am set up with a painting space in the wet-lab, surrounded by scientists, ocean mud, chemicals, and a wide array of colorful test tubes and equipment. It is an active place and the perfect space for creating direct paintings about this important ocean research. I have two paintings in the works right now and look forward to getting into many more during my time aboard! "   ~ Adam Swanson

I wonder if you can

A plaza in Canal Park

This weekend is the Duluth Superior Pride Festival, four days of celebrating the rich LGBT community in the Northland.  Thursday is the Duluth Mayor's reception at The Depot and Friday evening Zeitgeist hosts the DS Pride Exhibition with a reception at 7 p.m.

The Pride Exhibit includes work from 11 local artists and will be on display through September.  We spoke with local artists Janelle Turner Miller and Stacie Renee of Warrior Printress, an independent printing company in Duluth.

Minnesota Garlic Festival

Jerry Ford loves his garlic.

The founder of the Minnesota Garlic Festival is happy to talk about the over fifty varieties of garlic we have here in the state, the fact that garlic comes from northern climes originally (so yes, those garlics grown here are heirloom varieties) and the Minnesota Premium Garlic Project he coordinates.

UMD Office of Sustainability

UMD's first Free Store opened up at 10:30am last week on move-in day ... and some students arrived two or more hours early to get a spot in line.

The Office of Sustainability kept their plans - to make donated goods from last spring's move-out day available to incoming students - under wraps until just a day or two before it opened.

KUMD is proud to sponsor the NorthShore Inline Marathon on September 15th.
