Range fun for free: Art in the Park series nears close

The next-to-final show of the “Art in the Park” Iron Range music series hits the Minnesota Discovery Center amphitheater stage Thursday night in Chisholm.

Support local musicians Thursday, August 26, at Minnesota Discovery Center’s Art in the Park event. Music begins at 6 p.m. featuring Deafman’s Radio, a blues and rockabilly ensemble out of northern Minnesota, followed by Full Range, a vocal quartet. The final performance of the evening will be by Mark Pommier and band with all original material. Admission to Minnesota Discovery Center is free Thursdays after 5 p.m. The trolley will make one run, at 6 p.m. Cost is $2 per ride. Mini-golf is open all evening for $2 per round. Food and beverages are available to purchase.

Visit mndiscoverycenter.com or call 800-372-6437 for more information.

This event has been a summer hit and shows the possibilities of building grassroots events from the ground as opposed to blowing vast amounts of capital in a hunt for big names and big numbers. Kudos to MDC’s staff, though the road ahead remains long and winding. Keep Looking Up.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post said that Art in the Park closed Aug. 26. It actually closes Sept. 2.
