Weekend adventure

The Andes crew spent another Sunday doing laundry, grocery shopping, and preparing for the week, so I’m going to take today’s flog to talk about the trip to Minneapolis that Ashley, Alex, and I took yesterday.

Besides eating delicious Vietnamese food for lunch and tacos for dinner, the highlight of the day was going to the Walker Art Center. We started out in the garden and saw the iconic Hahn/Cock by Katharina Fritsch, along with some other great sculptures by Jim Hodges and Theaster Gates.

Not forgetting our ecology side, we did notice some bird’s foot trefoil in the meadow restoration along the footpaths (though we resisted the urge to dig it out) and we couldn’t help but check how far along some of the flowering Echinacea varieties were as we walked from place to place.

We spent a lot of time in the galleries, featuring Jimmie Durham, Katharina Fritsch, and videos of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. One exhibit by teamLab involved building up an ecosystem by coloring in templates of different organisms. Then we scanned these drawings and they came to life as video projections moving about in a colorful space.
