ICYMI - An artist featured in the current North Gallery exhibit, JuliAnne Jonker, has had one of her works selected to be digitized and sent to the moon! This project is a little out there, and we couldn't be more excited for her. See Jonker's work in the North Gallery exhibit "Minnesota Artists Association Spring Exhibition" during building visitor hours.

#LCcelebrates #stpaddysday

Favorite performers Tom Dahill and Ginny Johnson will be performing for IMDA's Pajama Party! Look for them in the Mid-Day set beginning at 12:30 pm on St. Patrick's Day.
Tom & Ginny - bringing alive the soul of Ireland, long time favorites on our stage and all around town. Using Irish button accordion, concertina, fiddle--and other instruments—Tom and Ginny play heavy music with a light touch. Performing tunes learned from the old masters, they delight audiences with passionate reels and playful songs not heard anywhere else.

How it s made-MARTISOR TRADITIONAL

Today is March 1, the traditional day Martisor/Martenitsa in the Balkans – Learn how to make your own martisorul for the celebration of the ancient Balkan tradition of Baba Marta. Martenitsas/Martisorul are believed to bring health, good luck and happiness to the people who are presented by one. They should be worn until March 22, or until you see a stork or swallow. Then they are tied to a blossoming tree branch. Watch the video, and to learn more about this or other Balkan traditions visit Landmark Center's Sundays at Landmark page for Balkan Fest!
