If you were able to walk and gawk through the delights of Art-a-Whirl 2012 you’ll want to compare your responses with those reflected in the June 2012 issue of In the District., the report from the Northeast Area Arts District spearheaded by Josh Blanc.
If you missed the seventeenth annual celebration of the arts in the Northeast community you will feel as if you had been there when you read the reflections of artist Caitlin Karolczak who explored her innate performance art talents as a first-timer at this year’s AAW.
Josh posed a series of queries, all of which Caitlin answers with enthusiasm for her experience and her life working in the Northeast arts community. “My studio is like a sanctuary,” Caitlin observes, adding that “it’s also nice to be a part of a bigger community of artists. NEMAA is a great hub and resource for all artists in Northeast”. As an artist relatively new to the community Caitlin notes that “I also really appreciate there are resident ‘old guards’ who are willing to act as mentors.”
Watch for Caitlin at the Modern Café where she loves the vintage drinks and the pot roast! “ She is not the first to sing the praises of the comfort food that fuels artists and lovers of art, Northeast Minneapolis and classic food served with panache.
