Weekly Range arts event in Chisholm aims to shake up local scene, bring out families

I let it pass without mentioning, but Ironworld, still operating as the Minnesota Discovery center, reopened a couple weeks ago. I met with the new CEO Paul Dwyer a few weeks ago and one of the things he was planning was a Thursday night arts program, free to the public, where local bands would play. Early bands would be family friendly. Kids would be invited to participate in different ways. As the night would wear on and kids went off to beddy-by, the music would get a little louder. Anyway, starting tomorrow that’s all really going to happen:

Art in the Park – Free Admission!

Thursdays June 17 through September 2
5 to 9 p.m. at the Minnesota Discovery Center Amphitheater in Chisholm

Performing June 17:

  • Richie Johnson
  • High Drama Blues
  • Mark Henderson and the Mojosaurus
  • Lost Children

Refreshments will be available for purchase. Call 218-254-1223 with questions or to participate as a visual or performing artist!

In keeping with my goal of supporting the Iron Range arts community, and with the fact that Ironworld is considerably more broke than the last time they were open, I’ll be sharing notices on this event through the summer. Time permitting, I hope to share more arts news about the region as well, perhaps in a weekly roundup. Any interest in that?
