Art Condition

Minneapolis outsides become art From the public space of a city bus to the phantom space occupied by buildings that are long gone in South Minneapolis, the current exhibit at Intermedia Arts -- "Art Inside/Outside Space XV" -- uses art to interpret the world outside.

It's the 15th year of the Jerome Foundation-sponsored exhibit, an installation art program aimed at emerging Minnesota artists.

Artists Shane Huston, Helene Keeffe, Azure Marlowe, Emma Spertus and Eric Winesett were chosen this year from 50 applicants.

The exhibit runs through June 16, every day from noon-5 p.m. Suggested donation is $2.

Love out loud at the Jungle Exploring love in all its forms -- erotic, unrequited, obsessive, passionate -- the Jungle Theater, in collaboration with The College of Saint Benedict and Graywolf Press, will present "Possession and Obsession: Readings from the Heart," a series of dramatic readings June 3 at 7:30 p.m.

Jungle actors, including Jennifer Blagen, Kris L. Nelson and Buffy Sedlachek, will join artistic director Bain Boehlke and bring to life books by various acclaimed Graywolf authors.

"This is the most magical coming-together of literature and the spoken word," Boehlke said. "Something unique happens that cannot be explained, only experienced."

A discussion will follow the presentation, which is part of an ongoing partnership between the College of Saint Benedict, Graywolf Press and the Jungle Theater.

Call 822-7063 to reserve tickets, which are $7 and $5 for students and seniors.

This is your life - on stage! Depending on your personality, the new production at Acadia Theater will sound like a really great idea -- or your nightmare come to life.

Choosing a total stranger from the audience, the cast of "Time of Your Life" combines improvisational comedy and musical theater to create a full-length musical based on that audience member's life. The rest of the audience provides suggestions to enhance the real-life story.

The production runs through June 15 and plays Wednesdays through Sundays. Ticket prices range from $18 to $20. Call 874-8702 for tickets and more information, or visit www.timeofyourlifeimprov.com.
