Stop running to the Rochester Art Center for a new exhibit

Stop running at the Rochester Art Center

Where do you find art? Especially in some sort of exhibition area, right? Like the galleries at Rochester Art Center (RAC), the Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona, or perhaps the Walker in MSP.

And in an elevator? Or in a small corner where you have decided to sit down and rest a little? The answer is probably no, but starting May 14, 2022, these are the kind of places you’ll find RAC new exhibition. And if you run, you’ll miss them.

Walk With Us (May 14 – October 3, 2022) is an international juried exhibition of walking-based art presented in the non-gallery spaces of the Rochester Art Center. (The source)

16 artists, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and other U.S. cities, as well as international locales such as Greece, Mexico, and Sweden, were selected from a pool of 87 applicants who all submitted work to help us see and understand different ideas while honoring the walk.

This exhibition makes you part of the art

Imagine for a moment looking at a painting of Washington crossing Delaware. Instead of just looking at it, what if you could get in the boat and smell the time, smell the smells, and hear the oars. It would radically change your perception of painting.

Toe to toe, you would never look at this picture, or even just the idea of ​​the picture, the same way again. This is a bit like what happens with Walk With Us. You become part of the exhibition by taking the map and exploring the works.

Special event that the Rochester Art Center does not experience

This is not an official RAC event related to Walk With Us, however, if you are visiting the exhibit on June 19, I recommend slowing your pace to that of a walk, as it is World Day of the walk. If you don’t know how to hang out, this video is a quick and easy to follow tutorial.

One of southeast Minnesota’s favorite places to get away from it all is Duluth…

If you want to live in Duluth, this house is on the market, although I doubt the artwork comes with the house.

Magnificent! Cutler’s historic Duluth mansion is on the market for less than $1 million

Featuring a limestone facade and castle-like appearance, one of Duluth’s most recognizable homes is the Cuter Mansion. Recently, this historic home was put on the market for just under a million dollars.

Dwight Cutler, a building materials magnate, obviously spared no expense when commissioning the construction of this residence, which was built in 1912. The exterior stone was quarried from Kelly Island in Lake Erie and the woodwork has been expertly crafted.

The mansion boasts 8,484 square feet comprising of 12 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms on a large tree-lined corner lot. It also offers 4 adjoining garage spaces.

What is interesting with this announcement is that it could be a source of income for the new owner. It was built as a single family residence, but has since been converted into a quadruplex.

Each unit in the quadruplex features large living areas, spacious bedrooms, full kitchens, and private laundry rooms. It also offers magnificent common areas.

The house is currently used for rental purposes, but it could also be used as a multi-generational home, possibly as a bed and breakfast, or even converted into a single-family home.

There are many interesting options for the new owner. Take a look at Duluth’s Cutler Mansion, which went on sale for $849,900.
