Winona’s Way: A Public Artwork

Just another weird week in Winona!  In collaboration with the Weird Media Exhibition at The Laird Norton Art Center for Art and Design, an artist will give a performance on the backwaters of the Mississippi. Margaret Dolinsky will perform Winona’s Way from a kayak that accentuate images on the kayak that “represent the spirit and energy of Winona.”  Dolinsky’s artwork will imitate the story of Princess Wenonah who leapt to her death in Lake Pepin to avoid marrying someone she didn’t love.  Dolinksy said “I will throw myself and my art into the water to pay homage to Winona by traveling in a kayak dressed with my stream of consciousness drawings.”

The public performance will be visible from the Minnesota Marine Art Museum Riverwalk on Friday, June 24, from 12:00p.m.- 12:30 p.m. and on Saturday, June 25, from 12::00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m.
