Luminous Current — Art Unveiling and Community Reception

August 14 @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm

In 2018, through an Arts Access grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the Guthrie Theater collaborated with Juxtaposition Arts (JXTA) to develop a work of art for the Guthrie’s Pohlad Lobby.

We invite you to join us for the unveiling of Luminous Current, a light-based art installation on Level Nine at the Guthrie Theater.

This event will include:

  • Pop-up boutique of artwork by Juxtaposition Arts
  • Video presentation about the making of Luminous Current
  • Cash bar

About the work:

In designing Lumninous Current, JXTA’s Environmental Design Lab was influenced by the theater’s physical location and surroundings — in particular, the waters of the Mississippi. JXTA artist apprentices D’Angelo Raymond and Temesgen Besha worked under the guidance of lead designers and architects Niko Kubota and Sam Ero-Phillips and collaborated with others including Minneapolis-based Solid Metal Arts and JXTA Chief Cultural Producer Roger Cummings. Raymond and Besha were inspired by the Guthrie’s unique position between the Mississippi River and downtown Minneapolis and designed the piece to mirror the color and motion of the water and reflect the architecture of the neighborhood.
