Weekend Arts Roundup: Particularly Minnesotan

The Plume Project uses power-plant steam
The Plume Project uses the steam plume from the District Energy St Paul plant on the edge of downtown because it is so visible from so many places. For Emily Stover's project ''Rumblings,'' people can call 651-383-1378 hear a poem read by one of six poets and watch the plume pulsate to the cadence of the poets voice. (Euan Kerrr | MPR News)

MPR News Arts Reporter Marianne Combs joins Jim McGuinn (in for Jill Riley) and Sean McPherson to talk about arts events with a particularly Minnesotan appeal.

Here's the rundown:

Storms of November — At Nimbus Theatre in Minneapolis, this play explores what it's like to work in the shipping and iron-ore industries on the Great Lakes through the experiences of one family. This will be the last show at the Nimbus Theatre before it moves out of its current space.

Bell Museum of Natural History — Artist Kellie Rae Theiss does lovely, detailed paintings of nature, and her show "Feathers and Fins," is a perfect fit for the Bell Museum of Natural History at the University of Minnesota. "Feathers and Fins" is on display through Sunday, Dec. 6.

Plume Project — Is there anything more Minnesotan than a light show created by the steam of St. Paul's heat generator? Over the next three months, poetry and images will be projected on the steam plume in downtown St. Paul. Euan Kerr has a story about this innovative and spectral art project.

Marianne Combs joins The Current's Morning Show for the Weekend Arts Roundup every Thursday at 8:30 a.m. Read all the latest arts news from MPR News.
