    The post-war pop-art movement, as this exhibition vibrantly demonstrates, wasn't limited to the U.S. (primarily New York) and Europe (primarily London). Pop art went viral — to put its influence in contemporary terms – and intersected globally with such art movements as Nouveau Réalisme (France), Capitalist Realism (Germany), Concretism and Neo-Concretism (Brazil), and even the Anti-Art in Japan. Exhilarating colors, images, patterns, iconography, and material juxtapositions are this exhibition's currency, with some 125 artworks by more than 100 artists extending widely beyond Warhol. Organized by the Walker, the exhibition next travels to Dallas and Philadelphia. There will be a Walker After Hours Preview Party on Friday, April 10, from 9 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are $30. On Saturday, April 11, there will be several opening-day panel talks. Check online at http://www.walkerart.org for a complete schedule.

    -
    If we had to describe the Cottagewood July 4th Celebration & Kid's Parade in one word it would have to be legendary. Without a doubt it is our most popular event of the season. Each year the Cottagewood July 4th Celebration and Kid's Parade attracts hundreds of people to Cottagewood to celebrate our nation’s freedom in Americana style.

    It all started in July of 1961 when the Perry's and the Clark's, two families that at the time lived on Northern Road, decided to organize a kid's parade. After a brief but by all accounts inspirational speech, by Bill Perry from the front steps of the Cottagewood General Store, this small band of patriots paraded down Northern Road to Sandy Beach around the block to Jefferson Street and ended back at the Store where they were treated to Popsicles. And thus the tradition began.

    Todays parade participants follow the same route taken did during that very first parade over 50 years ago. The Deephaven Police barricades the streets and the Excelsior Fire Department leads the multi-generational parade of participants that include kids on bikes, tiny tots in strollers, teens on skate boards, human-powered floats and patriotic pets all decorated in red, white and blue. Children's Park is transformed into a carnival grounds where kids play games for prizes, test their throwing arm at the very popular Dunk Tank and of course there is always a giant inflatable. There is a raffle for all kinds of fun stuff, face painting and what July 4th celebration would be complete without popcorn, hot dogs grilled to perfection and ice-cold root beer.

    The post-war pop-art movement, as this exhibition vibrantly demonstrates, wasn't limited to the U.S. (primarily New York) and Europe (primarily London). Pop art went viral — to put its influence in contemporary terms – and intersected globally with such art movements as Nouveau Réalisme (France), Capitalist Realism (Germany), Concretism and Neo-Concretism (Brazil), and even the Anti-Art in Japan. Exhilarating colors, images, patterns, iconography, and material juxtapositions are this exhibition's currency, with some 125 artworks by more than 100 artists extending widely beyond Warhol. Organized by the Walker, the exhibition next travels to Dallas and Philadelphia. There will be a Walker After Hours Preview Party on Friday, April 10, from 9 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are $30. On Saturday, April 11, there will be several opening-day panel talks. Check online at http://www.walkerart.org for a complete schedule.
