On the Walker Art Center calendar, you’ll find dates (April 10-12) for the premiere of the break/s, Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s new dance/theater piece. What you won’t see on the calendar are the weeks Bamuthi spent here in January and February leading a residency with local teen poets and videographers. This video opens a window into the residency–the first half marking the beginnings of the residency, the second half delving into the teens’ work in February. The fruits of their labor, inspired by the upcoming Republican National Convention in St. Paul, are on display in a free program Thursday in the Walker Cinema.

Under the weekly guidance of Twin Cities artists Matthew Bakkom and (Walker staffer) David Bartley, members of the Walker’s Teen Arts Council have spent the past couple months learning the nuances of collecting. Five of those teens — Marina Balleria, Olivia Ebertz, Zoe Sponsler-Hoehn, Libby London, and Marty Marosi – spent much of Saturday in the bowels of the Walker, curating and assembling the Council’s amassed items into a vitrene. Look for it on exhibit in the Bazinet Garden Lobby, beginning May 15.

Drop a marble into any hole, stand back and watch the magic. I bring you this little commission-free plug because the Walker tapped architect-turned-Q-Ba-Maze founder Andrew Comfort to fill the shop display window facing Hennepin Avenue with something colorful, grand and plastic. With the help of University of Minnesota art and architecture students, Comfort spent most of Monday (and likely much of today) installing a giant replica of a red snapper. Eavesdrop dropped in on his process.
