Vigil for Krissy Bates

20 Jan

More information about the Krissy Bates Vigil has been posted by OutFront Minnesota: Please join us for a vigil Friday, January 21 at 6pm at the MCTC Library (General Mills Room) to honor and remember the life of Krissy Bates, a member of our community whose life was cut short by a terrible act of violence.

After a short program at the library we will march to Krissy’s apartment building a few blocks away. Please bring candles, flowers and signs displaying positive messages of hope that our community can embrace to push back the darkness of fear and create a safer city.

Featured Artist: Smalls Looze

17 Jan

Smalls Looze, aficionado of all things campy, argyle, plaid and paisley, has come to realize that a career in fashion design would not suit them. Despite this setback, they are an excellent coffee drinker and first rate tennis racket re-gripper. They remain confident that these skills, paired with their constant state of disarray, will lead to unexpected and fulfilling opportunities.

Smalls is a poet and craft dabbler.

Featured Artist: Derek Freese

16 Jan

Derek Freese views the role of an artist to be one of a mediator. Much of his work reflects his experiences growing up and various relationships. He doesn’t always plan a piece before he starts to work through it, but through the act of creation he better understands himself. He uses objects that have birthing, growing, and delicate qualities to them. He describes his work as innocent, playful and humorous.
