Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn. – Lanesboro Arts Center is hosting the LANESBORO ARTS CAMPUS FESTIVAL on Saturday, September 13, 2014. The festival is in celebration of new Arts Campus components, and all events are free and open to the public. There are three parts to the Festival: 1) Outdoor events in the Bass Pond Parking Lot from 2 – 5 p.m., 2) A reception in the galleries from 5 – 7 p.m., and 3) The “Night of Poetry” at the St. Mane Theatre at 7:30 p.m. A special part of the Festival on September 13 will be the new installation of 15 poetry banners in the Bass Pond parking lot, featuring haiku by local/regional community members: Jo Anne Agrimson of Utica, MN; Tim J Brennan of Austin, MN; Emilio DeGrazia of Winona, MN; Larry Gavin of Faribault, MN; Catherine Glynn of Lanesboro, MN; Therese Masters Jacobson of Alvarado, MN; Cody Kleven of Stoughton, WI; Diane Knight of Whalan, MN; Korby Koch of Preston, MN; Jane Peck of Lanesboro, MN; Stephen Pittelko of Rochester, MN; Steven Schild of Winona, MN; Marcy Van Fossen of Winona, MN; Pam Whitfield of Rochester, MN; and Cynthia Wold of Minneapolis, MN. Poems by these 15 people were selected out of 170 haiku poems by a panel of literary experts under the direction of Ed Bok Lee.

The LANESBORO ARTS CAMPUS FESTIVAL will kick off at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 13 in the Bass Pond parking lot in Lanesboro (just off Cty 8 on the west side of town), with live music by The Slick Newhouse Band, featuring Nathan Davidson on saxophone, Eric Amundrud on drums, Jerry Barrett on trumpet, Kevin Carey on guitar, Geoff Forscher on bass, Stela Burdt on back-up vocals, and Damon Prestemon on keyboard/vocals. Following that, at approximately 2:45 p.m., will be a short spoken word performance by Akeila Attionna of Winona, MN (this will be a teaser for the “Night of Poetry” event that evening, where Akeila will be performing), and a reading of her original poem by 6th grader Esme Decker of Lanesboro, MN. Akeila and Esme both participated in poetry workshops led by Ed Bok Lee in May 2014, where they developed these poems. At 3 p.m. the Twin Cities band Reina del Cid & the Cidizens will take the stage, performing “spirited folk rock music.” The Festival will also feature Gyotaku fish printing . . . What is this? If you are imagining putting ink on a REAL FISH and then transferring that to paper to make a print, then you have created an accurate image in your head! The Gyotaku booth is presented in partnership wi .....
