Amy Lockart at Franklin Art Works

Another week, another weekend full of free stuff to do. In this edition of Freeloader Friday we've got a party featuring work by and inspired by Scott Seekins, an artist who you have probably seen wandering the streets of Minneapolis with his portable gallery. There's also a party for bike lovers, free classes in yoga and wine making, gallery shows, CD-release parties, and much much more.

Come take a look after the jump.
