Power Lunch on Power Portraits

A Power Lunch on Power Portraits

12 noon Wed., Oct. 18
@Duluth Courthouse, Fourth Floor

Join guest lecturers Anne Dugan (Art history instructor at the College of St. Scholastica) and Dan Hartman (director at Glensheen) to explore the history and art history of Duluth's Mayoral Portraits. This summer the City of Duluth made a selection of mayoral portraits from its archive to rehang on the Fourth floor if the historic City Hall. On view are portraits of John B. Sutphin, Ray T. Lewis, J.D. Ensign, John Drew, M.J. Davis, and Samuel Snively. This lunchtime talk celebrates the rehanging and provides an opportunity to look at the art of portraiture, as well as some of the history behind those pictured. Light snacks will be provided but feel free to bring a bag lunch.

Artist and educator Cecilia Ramon, in partnership with the DAI and the Office of Sustainability at UMD, offers Terrain: The Art of Localizing. The two-day symposium will address intersections between ecology, art and design based on systems thinking, opening new ways to co-exist with the living world. The goal is to explore the transformative power of art-making and nature-based design to re-imagine our world at a time of systemic change. Ramon will be joined by an interdisciplinary teaching team comprised of David Sanchez-Ruano, PhD in Design, University of Dundee, UK and Rachel Toczydlowski, PhD Candidate in Botany, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Participatory and inclusive, every session will dedicate time to theory, experimentation, hands-on art-making and sharing conclusions. The artist is supported by an Arrowhead Regional Arts Council grant. The symposium is free but registration is required via
www.duluthartinstitute.org/Events.  There will be a 30-person cap. Can’t make the two-day symposium? Please drop in Saturday evening for a free, one-hour Community Forum.
