Window to the West art display

Dates: November 1 - November 30
Time: all hours
218-209-7805 • Visit Website

Photographer Nik Nerburn and painter Brad Tollefson are creating a collaborative art exhibit on the streets of West Duluth’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, titled “Window to the West.” A selection of Tollefson’s paintings and Nerburn’s photographs will be on display in the storefront windows of 2001 West Superior Street for six months. Lincoln Park is undergoing a rebranding as the “Lincoln Park Craft District,” with many new craft businesses and artists moving in, providing tangible benefits to the neighborhood and its residents. “Window to the West” focuses on people and places on the margins of the neighborhood’s transformation, however, and their worries about affordability, displacement, and change. The work will be on display in two empty storefronts at 2001 West Superior Street, through a partnership between the Duluth Art Institute and the Duluth Housing and Redevelopment Agency, which owns the Seaway Hotel building.

We hope to provide each city involved a chance to have fun as a community while being a part of a greater event. Voting will be broken down by city and allow everyone the chance to vote in two categories for each city: favorite home and business. The top winners in those categories from each city (by number of votes) will win the overall master prize. Also vote for your “Favorite City” this is to encourage friendly regional competition. Lastly vote for your favorite master. These are for those homes who have won twice before. This years 2017 featured cities include Duluth, Superior, Two Harbors and Cloquet. Additional cities included are Hermantown and Proctor. Awards will be given for best home and business in each town, best home overall and grand master.
