Homegrown isn't just about the music any more.  Over the years it's grown to encompass some cool art, too, not the least of which is the Homegrown Photo Show, and the crowd-sourced Photo Stupor Show.  The Duluth Art Institute combines disposable cameras with music-crazed, party-all-night Homegrown fans and then sits back to watch the magic happen.

The Duluth Art Institute is sending a shout-out to artists: there's an open call for gallery submissions through April 1st; an open call for the Plein Air summer festival (and it's not just for painters, BTW) and Studio 3 West has a call for entries for a show called WTF! A Feminist Art Exhibit.

The Duluth Art Institute offers a workshop on that "most excruciating" task: writing an artist statement. (It's not recommended that you actually use one of these, but they are a lot of fun to read).

A record-breaking 182 artists entered the Duluth Art Institute's Member Show this year, and Annie Dugan has her eye on some new artists to watch.

Friday is Paint Night with Karen Savage-Blue at Gimaajii - and since it's her birthday, it will technically be Paint-and-Cake Night ...

Essayist and artist Andy Sturdevant joins us in the studio to weigh in on hotdish like a Rothko,  Ralph's Corner Bar and the poignance of the Minnesotan's long memory for the way things were.
