Collecting Memory: Photographs and Installations by Jeff Millikan
Opening: Sat. July 14
Bell Museum (2088 Larpenteur Ave. W, St. Paul)
This weekend’s festivities may be focused on the grand re-opening of the Bell Museum and the emergence of Sir Woolly Mammoth (yes it is a male), but also not-to-miss is artist-in-residence Jeff Millikan’s new exhibition featuring memory-related photos and installations. One of the harder topics to digest is how much climate change has affected the environment. Millikan delves into this with “She was concerned about the loss of habitat” a collection of fallen eastern bluebirds inside a diorama-like case. Exhibition ends Sept. 2.
