Multi-media installation NORTH opens Tuesday, September 12

7 September 2023

This Fall, the Hamlin Creative Space in the Weitz Center features the installation NORTH by composer Mary Ellen Childs in collaboration with Zeitgeist (the Twin Cities’ premier new-music ensemble), painter Linsdy Halleckson and videographers Tamara Ober and Caitlin Hammel.  Based on the stark winter environment of the Arctic, NORTH combines recorded music & sound, abstract paintings in winter hues, projected imagery of northern snowscapes, and sculptural elements to create an immersive environment in which to consider our northernmost lands and their connection to all of us – wherever we live.

NORTH opens Tuesday, September 12.  The Hamlin Creative Space is located in the Weitz Center for Creativity, on the lower level beneath Kracum Performance Hall.  Open hours are Mondays – Wednesdays 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
