Things will be cooling off into the weekend
, but keep an eye out for possible storms Saturday into Sunday. Also keep your eye on the skies for fireworks! We have a roundup of shows and events to help you celebrate the Fourth of July weekend.
Grilling season is in full swing, and maybe you've already had your fill of burgers and hotdogs. So All Things Considered turned to chef-entrepreneur and cookbook author Amalia Moreno-Damgaard for ideas to help us get out of our grilling comfort zones. She also shared her recipe for seafood skewers!
The interdisciplinary arts show “La.dy.like” investigates what it means to be femme. Artists muse on the act of walking at an international exhibit tucked in and around the Rochester Art Center. “There’s a Crack in Everything” offers an evening of storytelling and song at Bryant Lake Bowl Theatre in Minneapolis.
Celebrations and community events around the state
Before the fireworks there's plenty of food and fun to be had at these events around Minnesota:
The Minneapolis Institute of Art opened two exhibits last weekend, “Dressed by Nature: Textiles of Japan” and “Van Gogh and the Olive Groves.” At a sneak peek, curators and MIA leadership discussed the long-awaited and culturally significant exhibits.
Jennifer Jubenville of the Bookstore at Fitger’s in Duluth says there’s nothing like a good thriller for a summer read, and she recommends checking out Joshua Moehling’s debut, “And There He Kept Her.”
