Lincoln Park

Mary Plaster

The weather outside is frightful - well, the wind chills are.

But that means it's perfect weather for ice luminaries or, if you're Mary Plaster, maybe something more along the post-industrial plastic/wire/LED line.

Most of the time, we don't talk about books that haven't been published yet on MN Reads, much less books that haven't even been written.

But when Tom Hanson, Ecolibrium 3 and the rest of the Lincoln Park neighborhood gets an idea for something great - there's no stopping them.

You can find out more about the OMC Smokehouse Cookbook and the Lift Lincoln Park project here.

 

Shannon Cousino/Duluth Art Institute

There will be a closing reception for Shannon Cousino's "little exhibit of big woodcuts" at the Duluth Art Institute on Tuesday, December 10th from 5:30-7pm.

Lincoln Park's Craft District Holiday Market is this weekend: if you can't find what you need with 120 vendors in six locations around the Craft District ... maybe you should just go to lunch instead.

  With a shorter holiday shopping season as it is, local merchants had a lot riding on Small Business Saturday last weekend.

  So what happens when your small business gets buried under two feet of snow?

  If you're in Duluth, you just get ready for Small Business Saturday Redux!

The solar panels will go up before year's end at the northeastern entrance to the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

DTA

The Duluth Transit Authority is holding a public meeting this afternoon (Wednesday, March 27) at 1:30pm to talk about their plan to shut down three of their routes.

 [This episode of Caring & Sharing originally aired on December 21, 2018, and was re-aired on January 4, 2019.]  
 

Programming offered on the hour in six categories: sports and recreation, education, arts, health and wellness, career development and character and leadership.

Plus hot food with all five components of a healthy meal.

A retreat?  Professional development? A resort?

Nope.  Just the Boys & Girls Club Lincoln Park.

Jim Richardson's Ore Boats in Space: Cartoon Visions of Duluth, Minnesota  is on display at the Red Herring through the end of November.

The Prøve Collective's Meat* & Greet on Thursday whets your appetite for the Ron Campbell Pop Up Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

@Lincoln Park Farmers Market

When the Lincoln Park Farmers Market started up six years ago, it wasn't just so folks could buy some flowers and a little fresh fruit for breakfast.

A survey had just been conducted that showed people in the Lincoln Park neighborhood weren't living as long as everyone else in the community.  In fact, no access to healthy food, due to transportation problems and the distance to the nearest grocery stores, was shaving about ten years off their life expectancies.

Where's the best art opening this week?  What shows are closing?  Are there any calls-for-entries anywhere?  

Annie Dugan brings you a comprehensive look at Where's Art every Monday morning at 8:20am on Northland Morning.

This week we talked about making steamroller art (with a real steamroller!) at Friday's Lincoln Park Solstice Street Party.

And of course we talked about this weekend's Park Point Art Fair.
