Ways to Connect

Lou Ferreri is a mixed media visual artist whose 120 piece show is currently on display at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji.  His exhibit, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible" is an extensive collection of intricate, elaborate doodles created on the editorial sections of the New York Times.  Twenty five of those works have an accompanying essay gifting the viewer with even more depth, context and understanding to those associated pieces.  All of the works are cholk full of a unique balance of symbolism and relatable images as well as whimsy and gravity.  The twenty five with accompanying writings are collected and displayed in the book, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible."

Mur Gilman is passionate about living an active life and encouraging others to do so, too.  She's helped organize Bemidji's Loop the Lake Festival since its inception more than five years ago.  This Saturday, Loop the Lake organizers expect around 1,000 bicyclists to cruise the 17 miles around Lake Bemidji while enjoying entertainment and snacks along the way.  Mur stopped by the morning show to tell us more about the event.

Countless little ones dream of being dancers when they grow up, but few actually take the steps and put in the grueling hours required to turn that dream into reality.  Arimee Gambill of Grand Rapids has enrolled in dance classes at the Reif Center since she was a little girl.

Last August, community marches were held across the country to show solidarity in response to the events that unfolded in Charlottesville, VA during a neo-nazi, white supremacy rally.  Dan Gannon was a key organizer in the Bemidji Unite Against Hate march back in August and he is on a mission to continue the conversation around diversity and the strength it brings to our lives and communities.  Dan has organized a special event that combines art and music - all in the name of bringing unity to the community.  He stopped by the morning show this week to talk about it.
