Join our group after work for another social at a popular local brewery. Surly is located in the Prospect Park Neighborhood, right between Minneapolis and St. Paul. It's known for a good selection of experimental brews and has a very good in-house food selection. Check out their brew and food menu at: https://surlybrewing.com/ I will be there early to get a table, so ask the host where we are or look for the pink checkered table cloth on our table. Parking available in Surly's back lot.
Join us for this free photo exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and learn about the rich history of some fabulous 1970's trail blazing women. Here is the MIA web site description: "This exhibition is the first to present the work of documentary photographer Carolyn “Meadow” Muska. Born and raised in Minnesota, Meadow came out as a lesbian at age 20. After earning a BFA at Ohio University, she used photography to record “beautiful, strong women, full of love and joy.” In an era of persistent legal and cultural prejudice against LGBTQ individuals, documenting her community was a radical act. Because her photographs could have exposed her subjects to significant risks, including the loss of employment, child custody, or housing, she developed her own film in a basement darkroom for decades. The extraordinary photographic record she produced as a part of the “women’s land” movement in both Minnesota and Oregon, as well as her work as a labor and women’s rights activist, illuminates a new and vital chapter in American history. Meet at 2pm in the main lobby of the MIA. Look for me I will be holding a yellow bandana. There is parking in the MIA pay ramp and on the street nearby.
