Water water everywhere ~~ And now a place to think……
The Water Bar in Northeast Minneapolis is establishing itself as a gathering place for civil – even enlightened – conversation on a range of environmental, art and social justice issues. Perhaps because they leased the comfortable setting during early elections the re-opened site is busier than ever in weeks to come. The overflowing agenda features a broad range of topics, formats, presenters and learning options. Something for everyone.
For example, the robust programs include collaborative workshops with the MuseWeb Foundation, the Smithsonian Institution’s Museums on Mainstreet Programs and We Are Water MN. There are coffee talks on Northeast Minneapolis Art Sustainability, a brown bag lunch on Climate + Water, storytelling sessions, and a program on the TC’s climate connections.
The Water Bar also features ongoing art exhibits. During this winter season the exhibit features the work of Regan Golden whose work, appropriately entitled “Thaw”, is on display through January 8. (http://regangolden.com/home.html)
All of these initiatives and opportunities are spelled out in detail on the Water Bar website. (http://www.water-bar.org) The unique watering hole is located on Central Avenue Northeast, just North of Lowry, in warm, welcoming – and happening — Northeast Minneapolis.
