The "Beyond the Other Side of the Eye" exhibit of Lao American speculative poetry, art and futurism will be taking place between February 21st-23rd in Minneapolis along with the Lao American Storytelling Festival. This activity was made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Region Arts Council, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
This exhibit will feature the work of Saymoukda Vongsay, Mali Kouanchao, Seth Lyons, Vongduane Manivong, Bryan Thao Worra and other artists, with workshops presenting a historical overview and consideration of future directions.
This program will take place at the Harrison Neighborhood Center at 503 Irving Avenue N., Minneapolis, MN with formal sessions, workshops and performances from 1 to 4 each day. Free and open to the public. Further schedule details to be announced.
