Mpls Art: the Guthrie

A trip to the Guthrie is an example of some of the architectural art in Minneapolis.
The theater (actually it holds three theaters and a four star restaurant) sports pictures of great playwrights. Emma, Taran, Enoch, Calvin and Willa stand in front of George Bernard Shaw for scale.

We did go out on one of the "longest, occupiable cantilevers in the world." But I didn't get any pictures. Dang it! But just to be able to say "Longest, occupiable cantilever in the world, well one of...", now THAT'S braggin' rights.

This is the lobby of the Dowling theater. It is made with orange glass walls and a glass ceiling and even some of the floor is glass, which Enoch and Calvin appreciated.

Looking out on a very yellow downtown.

My next Mpls Art goal: actually see a play.
(I'm not sure if you've noticed but the things we do tend to be free. Or at least very, very cheap.)
