The participating artists will address migration, settlement, globalization and identity based on their own experiences, family connections, ideas or sentiments.
Grupo Soap del Corazon celebrates 16 years of art making and exhibiting with a show of 16 artists at the Franconia in the Cities gallery in NE Minneapolis. Why "Casa Magica"?
1) Because a gallery is a “house of magic”, of magical goings on;
2) Because artists make art as a way to explore magic with the world they live in- and within their own psyches;
3) and because artists make art as a way tocreate a magical experience for others.
Artists' talk is Friday, October 8th, from 7:30-8:30.
The first short film by latino artists Los Hermanos Flores, Xavier Tavera, and Dougie Padilla. Goats in woods become avid fans of performance and poet Ted King, Singer-songwriter David Ballman, and dancer Lela Pierce. Background performance energy by goat whisperer Stewart Turnquist.
