Art & Business Breakfast

November 12, 2019, 7:30 am to 9:00 am

Keeping the “A” in STE(A)M

Please join us at Plains Art Museum’s next gathering in the Art & Business Breakfast series. This innovative program brings Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo artists together with business and cultural leaders. Through presentations, conversations, and activities, we explore the connections art and business share.

STEM appears in 2005 when two US House members “set up the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, or STEM, caucus” in Congress. A few more mentions of STEM appear in 2006. And by 2008, STEM is making headlines. STEAM—the addition of ART—arrived around 2010-2011. But why has it been so difficult for the “A” to stay in STEM? What will it take keep it there? Join us as Lisa Parrish tells us why and how.

Parrish is founder of Musical Bridges, a Fargo-Moorhead based organization that connects cultures through music, uses STEAM concepts by relating Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math to one another, demonstrating that the whole is stronger than its parts.

The Unchosen Ones

December 05, 2019 - February 22, 2020
Photographs by R.J. Kern

R.J. Kern’s photographic works can be unsettling – somehow both surreal and direct, light-hearted yet regal – as well as undeniably beautiful. The works from his series, The Unchosen Ones, expose subtleties in the human condition and honor the effort of the animals (and their handlers) who came in last place at ten Minnesota county fairs in 2016.
