1  Duluth Art Institute

“Lest We Forget”
April 20 – June 18 | Steffl Gallery

Fred Amram and Sandra Brick

Twin Cities-based artist Sandra Brick creates mounted dioramas to illustrate the memoir of her husband, Fred Amram, whose Jewish family fled Nazi Germany as a refugee to the United States. Incorporating mixed media and fiber techniques, the works form portals to Amram’s world. Brick and Amram will be spending a week in Duluth to speak to groups about their project, with a special public presentation on Holocaust Remembrance Day, April 24th, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.


April 14 – July 7 | Morrison Gallery

Joe Klander

Joe Klander is an ophthalmology technician, professional wrestler, father, husband, 1980s movie aficionado, arts and crafts enthusiast, and illustrator (but not necessarily in that order). Klander’s love of pop culture and childlike humor is utterly infectious. This exhibit will feature drawings and full scale dioramas exploring wrestling heroes and strongmen of Klander’s youth, including the ultimate action figure of his day: Arnold Schwarzenegger. A special opening night match will feature figures from Minnesota’s rich professional wrestling history. Cheers and jeers are welcome along with fans of all ages.  Steffl Gallery ~ April 20 – June 18

Free admission to Art Institute Exhibits.
