When you hear the words “outdoor art,” you probably assume it’s going to be a warm-weather exhibition. Not so for B-Lectric, a celebration of art and light coming to the corner of Irving and Lagoon Avenues in Uptown on Sunday. Thanks to a partnership between arts organization Northern Lights.mn and French bistro Barbette, ice walls will be erected to serve as projection screens for light-based installations. Lean against a sound bed to experience icebergs calving to Joshua McGarvey’s Ice Fall-Feel the Change, see short films of First Nation communities from Canadian mobile recording studio Wapikoni, and witness footage of the Dakota Access Pipeline protest at Standing Rock in a documentary compilation by Graci Horne. The Art Shanty Projects will also be on site turning surfaces into art galleries-cum-social experiments. Shanties for story-writing, dancing, and maple syrup lollipop-making will be open. The Infiammati Fire Circus will be throwing flames while DJ Jake Rudh spins tunes.
