Fargo Theatre, 314 Broadway, Fargo $8 adult / $6 children

The cats are back! Last year Plains Art Museum teamed up with the Fargo Theatre for the North Dakota premiere of the famed Internet Cat Video Festival, attracting a sell-out crowd. For the Museum’s 40th Anniversary, we once again bring back this cultural phenomenon. Produced and curated by the Walker Art Center, the wildly popular collection of the year’s best screen stars of the cat video world has become a national and international phenomenon. The festival is a live event, gathering fellow feline fanatics to watch cat clips in a social environment, to experience together the hilarity and fascination of this addictive art form.

The new reel will feature approximately 100 cat videos culled from nominations by the public in the categories of Comedy, Drama, Animated, Musical, Action, Vintage, and Documentary.

Pie Project Fargo
pielogo
The Pollinator Party includes a social engagement project by the art duo “Low Tech/High Joy,” who use their homemade pies as a centerpiece for conviviality and conversation. Marlaine Cox and Karen Kasel from the Twin Cities were charmed by the pie culture of Fargo-Moorhead and proposed linking pies to the Museum’s Fargo Street Fair events and the Pollinator Garden (fruit for pies need pollinators!). Stop in to see their “pie diorama” in the Steven Berrell Memorial Commons at the Center for Creativity, and (while supplies last) have a free slice of pie and cup of coffee and get to know others who stop in for this afternoon of hospitality and fun.
