Unicorn Art Show: 2
(Casket Arts Community, 681 17th Ave. NE, Minneapolis; 612-788-5551)
For generations, unicorns have inspired teen girls, cosplayers, kink memes makers, and other artists. They are so beloved that “unicorn poop,” rainbow-colored baked goods doused in glitter, is now a thing. This Thursday, Casket Arts will revel in all things unicorn with a massive group show. At this party, there will be unicorn-themed art galore from over 50 participating artists. Guests are encouraged to be part of the show as well: Princesses, dragons, pegasus, and any variety of My Little Pony are welcome. Want to bike to the event? A queer-, femme-, and family-friendly ride of unicorns and other magical creatures will meet at Powderhorn Park Community Center at 5:15 p.m. for a chill ride (with prizes for best costume). 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday.
