3 free things to do this week


This week in free stuff to do we have a free film screening, a bike ride, and a gallery opening. Come take a look.


Trespassing Bergman

(American Swedish Institute, 2600 Park Ave., Minneapolis; 612-871-4907)

In this intriguing and bizarre film, a group of filmmakers break into Ingmar Bergman’s home on Fårö Island, which is now, oddly enough, an untouched private homage to the dead director. There, they reflect on his life and creative work. This documentary also features interviews with a variety of directors and actors discussing the revered Bergman, including Wes Anderson, Holly Hunter, Martin Scorcese, Wes Craven, Robert DeNiro, and Alejandro González Iñárritu.  7 p.m. Wednesday. This event is free, but RSVP is requested. Click here to do so.


Koochella's W/T/F + Allies Social Ride

(Sunrise Cyclery, 2901 Blaisdell Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-824-6144)

Is it biking season yet? It might not be 30 Days of Biking time, but with the right gear it's always cycling season. This Thursday Koochella, a group of competitive bikers who seek to promote women's urban cycling, will be getting together for this non-competitive, chill ride. This is a W/T/F (women, trans, femmes) and allies event. Organizers plan to ride at a reasonable pace for about an hour, as people make their way to Sociable Cider Werks in northeast Minneapolis. There will be cider and fooseball following. 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

"Lucidus Ordo" 

(Silverwood Park, 2500 County Rd. E W., St. Anthony; 763-694-7707)

"Lucidus ordo," the name of this exhibition, translates from Latin to mean "clear arrangement." But what does that mean? Andrew Nordin and Gene Pittman explore how we perceive the world around us with drastically different results. Pittman employs found and constructed objects; meanwhile Nordin goes the abstract painting route. There will be an opening reception this Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m.
