Headwaters Music & Arts will host the curated exhibit Herstory: Celebrating Women’s History Month during the month of March. The exhibit, curated by local artist Paul Swenson, celebrates women and women artists in particular.
March was declared National Woman’s History Month in 1987 and since then has been a time to celebrate individual women of historical importance, groups of women of historical importance, and women in general and their importance in history. Swenson says of the exhibit “Women have generally been written out of history and when mentioned are usually portrayed in stereotypical roles. With this exhibit we celebrate women and women artists in particular.” The exhibit will feature art from thirteen local artists.
The public is invited to the First Friday opening reception from 4 to 6 pm on March 2nd, there is no cost to attend. The exhibit will be up for the month of March.
Headwaters Open-Mic Coffee House will be held Friday, March 2nd, 7-10pm. The CoffeeHouse is a volunteer-led community event with a relaxed and welcoming tone, held the first Friday of most months. The event features music and spoken word performance in a supportive and family-friendly environment. Good coffeehouse fare is available courtesy of Cantabria Coffee Co.
This month’s CoffeeHouse will be hosted by local musician, and Bemidji Area Youth Commission Advisor, Rachel Munson. Rachel will be joined in her hosting capacity by the Bemidji Area Youth Commission (BYAC), a commission of the Bemidji City Council. The BYAC exists to represent the interests and concerns of a broad spectrum of youth in the Bemidji area and to seek out and promote ways to foster a healthy and positive environment for youth and families in the community.
The BYAC will be dedicating the March 2nd Headwaters CoffeeHouse to Spring Fever. It is a difficult time of year for many and the BYAC would like to spread some early spring cheer with as many folks as possible. The BYAC will be selling carnations during the CoffeeHouse to raise funds for their upcoming June 7th Youth Rally.
All ages and skill levels are encouraged to sign up for a 10 to 15 minute set. Feel free to Bring a song or poem about spring. Sign up begins at 6:30. Admission is $3/person or $7/family.
