Thursday Night is the ArtSwirl Kick-Off in Bridge Square

IngvoldstadPortrait.jpgThis Thursday, August 7th, is the big ArtSwirl Kick-off in Bridge Square. It’s a family-friendly event with something for everyone.

From 4 to 7 pm, the weekend-long Wood Sculpting Demonstration by Minnesota artist Curtis Ingvoldstad begins. The subject of Curtis’ ArtSwirl piece is a secret (at least until tomorrow night), however, (hint) it is a popular local theme.

At 6 pm, there is a surprise visit by the subject of the Ingvoldstad sculpture (and then it’ll be no secret). Don’t miss the dramatic arrival!

Shortly after 6 pm, the breakdancing, featuring the Lost Boyz Crew and an “Edible Art Walk“, along with a variety of arts and crafts activities for kids (sponsored by the Northfield Entertainment Guide, The Rare Pair, Sisters Ugly, The Sketchy Artist, Sweet Pea’s Toys and Treats, and Women & Kids on Division) begins.

Finally, back by popular demand from the Vintage Band Festival, it’s Craig Ebel & DyVersaCo for a polka-style street dance. People who were there will tell you, it’s a whole lot of fun.

It’s all free and it’s all in Downtown Northfield.
