The young African-American couple chose to buy a house in what many then considered a “white neighborhood.” The exhibition interprets the protests and responses in the broader context of race and housing in Minneapolis, racism in Minnesota, and the individuals and organizations that defended the Lees, including the NAACP and the distinguished attorney Lena Olive Smith.

"Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" at the Guthrie Theater

07/19/2014 (All day) - 08/31/2014 (All day)

In this hilarious comedy of ill manners, the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Play, Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia are living a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up, while their sister Masha travels the world as a movie star. Just as their cleaning woman issues a warning about terrible events in their future, Masha returns for an unannounced visit with her 20-something boy toy Spike in tow – and so begins an unforgettable weekend building to a fever pitch of rivalry, regret and racket. Mixing Chekhov sensibilities with modern cringe-worthy flair, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a delightfully off-kilter summer romp that critics have hailed "a sublime state of hilarity" and "a zany joy!"

Art Expanded, 1958–1978 at the Walker Art Center

06/14/2014 (All day) - 03/08/2015 (All day)

Drawn from the Walker’s extensive collection of artworks, films, archival materials, and ephemera, this exhibition explores the many facets of the so-called “expanded arts” scene of the 1960s and ’70s, charting a transformational phase in the history of 20th-century art when artists around the world collectively began to challenge, critique, and upend traditional media and disciplines. The teachings of John Cage, the emergence of event scores and Happenings, the dissemina­tion of Fluxus material and editions, and the embrace of conceptualism, performance, video, television, avant-garde film, and experimental music—all of these factors in the context of a rapidly changing world influenced artists and thinkers as they tested art’s evolving status as object, information, and experience.
