Life continues under ice.
Lighting and Projection artist Michael Murnane attempts a rare and sometimes frightening glimpse into the living world Under Ice.
After ice has formed on the surface of a lake or river it becomes an eerie ghostly environment of darkness with fleeting images of life and of silence broken only with an occasional thundering crack.
All night long, dramatic, live, high resolution, multi layered video taken “under ice” projected on the facade of Pillsbury A with new performance by Kevin Kling about ice fishing, dads, and the meaning of life at 9:45 pm, 10:30 pm, and 11:15 pm.
Performance: Big Little Brother with Kevin Kling and Chris Monroe

Free First Saturday
Join in an exciting day of art-making, films, performances, and tours that plays with the memories of young and old. Gallery admission is free for everyone on the first Saturday of each month from 10 am to 5 pm, with a variety of family activities scheduled from 10 am to 3 pm.
In this fun story-telling event, celebrated playwright and performer Kevin Kling narrates his recent children’s book Big Little Brother, co-authored and illustrated by painter and cartoonist Chris Monroe. This charming story traces a familiar arc from sibling rivalry to brotherly love.
Being an older brother has its benefits, of that there’s little doubt. But how would you feel if your little brother grew to be bigger than you? And what if he insisted on touching all your things and following you everywhere you went? It’s enough to frustrate the most even-keeled of kids. Then an encounter at the playground teaches him that a pesky younger sibling can actually be a pal.
