Art-a-Whirl checklist: Gay Witch Abortion, Skoal Kodiak, and Private Dancer
Ah, Art-a-Whirl. That yearly weekend art fest that turns Northeast Minneapolis into a who's who and what's what of art and music.
You'll still find the hand made jewelry, the photographer's self-portraits, and the non-representational color canvases cluttering dozens upon dozens of galleries in Nordeast. But, over the years, the festival has demonstrated increasing musical relevance too.
We're still curating the best and brightest of this year's festival, and will be adding to this list over the next 24 hours. But here's a good primer to get you started.
