A highlight of the Rural Arts and Culture Summit will include “A Steady and Irresistible Wind,” a site-specific, place-based performance installation created by artist Bethany Lacktorin, which will take place during the Summit on and nearby the University of Minnesota, Morris campus at the WCROC Horticulture Display Garden. A follow up to Lacktorin’s performance, My Ocean (2016), this piece is an ongoing exploration of diaspora where displacement, transition and growth are expressed in word, music, movement and sound. Bethany is joined by poet, Ben Weaver, the Twin Cities Sacred Harp Singers, The Prairie Fire Ladies Choir, with special assistance from the MN Kite Society and Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
