Prøve Collective

You still have a few hours left to share "your drawings, photographs, poems, rants, comics, notes, doodles, your abandoned Etsy pages, the true crime theories you’ve obsessively “solved,” your rabbit holes, and your visions for awakening from this long hibernation." Tonight at 1pm is the deadline for submission to the  Prøve Collective's upcoming zine called Emerge

All the submission details are available here.

Annie Dugan lets us know about several snow sculptures that have been created on several sidewalks and parking lots in the Lincoln Park Craft District as part of the Duluth Winter Festival in Lincoln Park.


This week, Annie Dugan brings us stories about how public art is how we cope with - and grieve - the death of George Floyd.

Who knew there was such a thing as the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture - but that they're not "the government"?

They say only two things are certain in this life: death and taxidermy.  Well, something like that. 

Duluth's Lupe Linares presents a fascinating, funny look into a topic you didn't think could be either, Wednesday evening, March 4

Reina del Cid

This Twin Cities indie folk/rock artist built a following by recording weekly YouTube videos. Del Cid has expanded her sound with the addition of a backing band; they have a new album due out on October 4 and recently released the first single, a song about a ghost named Bernadette. We found out more and heard some tunes when del Cid and her band joined us live in the studio on September 20. It was a preview of their show the same night at Prove Gallery in Duluth.
