Movies & Music in Loring Park on hiatus for 2010
Rather, the Walker seems to be shifting its focus to holding events on its own grounds, and has announced a series of films and performances that will be taking place on their grassy hillside with a program called Walker's Open Field. See below for the two music highlights coming up this summer.
Sunday, July 11, 1pm - 9 pmFor more information on upcoming Walker events, visit their website.
Walker Art Center
Soak in the sun and take in the sounds of Tapes 'N Tapes and Total Babe on the Walker's rolling hillside. This day long festival of music throws high school musicians in the mix with established bands, rappers and performers.
In addition to featured acts on the main stage, bring your best music mixes to trade in a mixtape exchange, sign up to perform on the Open Mic stage, and make connections and learn more about the professional arts community at the Young Artists Resource Fair. Presented by the Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council (WACTAC).
Saturday, June 26, 8 pm
William and Nadine McGuire Theater
The Walker Art Center presents a sumptuous evening concert by singer/songwriter Juana Molina, straight from Buenos Aires, on Saturday, June 26, 8 pm, in the McGuire Theater. Molina blends tropical folk, bubbling electronica, and graceful rhythms to create the freshest sounds coming out of Argentina today. This minimalist chanteuse and former TV comedienne has found an international buzz for her disarming stage presence and beguiling vocals that float through ambient washes of harmonies and textures. The concert is presented in association with the opening day of the exhibition Guillermo Kuitca: Everything, Paintings and Works on Paper, 1980-2008, the first comprehensive survey of the Argentinean artist's career in more than 15 years, featuring some 50 paintings and 25 works on paper from key series focusing on the theater, geography, and domestic and institutional architecture. Tickets to Juana Molina are $18 ($15 Walker members) and are available at walkerart.org/tickets or by calling 612.375.7600.
