Free stuff to do this week includes a craptacular movie screening in a bar, a group art show with a little bit of everything, and an art party featuring an emerging artist.
Come take a look at our list and plan your week.
Masters of the Universe
(Turf Club, 1601 University Ave. W., St. Paul)
Nothing starts the week off right like a crappy '80s movie. Masters of the Universe is that movie. The flick takes the popular cartoon and turns it into a live-action train wreck starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, Frank Langella as Skeletor, and Courteney Cox as some lady. The story follows He-Man as he tries to thwart Skeletor, who has captured Castle Grayskull, and plans to take the Sorceress's energy by sundown. To do this, He-Man must travel from Eternia to Earth with Man-At-Arms and his daughter, Teela, in search of some magical key or something. Fourteen Rising: An Exhibition of VSA/Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Grantees
(SooVAC, 2638 Lyndale Ave. S., Minneapolis) Neal Perbix: Tape Series
(Gallery One at OST, 800 Washington Ave. N., Suite 111, Minneapolis)
The Art Leadership Program has been up to some interesting projects lately, supporting emerging artists and hosting shows in new and unexpected gallery spaces. Local artist Neal Perbix is certainly one of those up-and-coming talents. His mixed-media pieces utilize unconventional materials, like tape, to create compelling components. There will be a public reception from 4 to 7 p.m. this Thursday.
