The centenary celebration of Nelson Mandela's birthday continues with a local arts event, a talk at the Tweed Museum of Art.  Ray Allard presents "Art Against Oppression in South Africa," Thursday, Sept. 27, 6-8 p.m.

A Minnesota artist, Allard and his wife lived in post-apartheid South Africa and bring a perspective on the arts and censorship in the complex political landscape that Mandela survived and thrived.

More information on the Mandela centenary and the arts talk at the following links:

Much of what we love about nature is the same thing we love about art: how we feel when we look at it.

The Duluth Art Institute and Hartley Nature center are presenting a series called Art, Naturally that runs through next summer.  The first installment is tonight at 7pm, Painting Under the Full Moon with Karen Savage Blue.

There is still time to see Chance, an art experience created by local composer and media artist Kathy McTavish. Chance is a thought-provoking, experiential installation at the UMD Tweed Museum's Sax Brothers' Gallery, up through the summer. It is a self creating, coded, digital and audio installation, ever-changing through the hours of the day and the seasons of the year. To get the full affect of the work, you want to visit multiple times as no two days of the exhibit are the same.
