Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Painting: Masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland
ENDING SOON!!! Last day: Sunday, May 1, 2011
Minneapolis Insitute of Arts
Two of the most important paintings from the Italian Renaissance are currently making their Twin Cities debut. Venetian painter Titian's 'Diana and Actaeon' and 'Diana and Callisto' will be on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the second of only three stops the paintings will make on their first visit to the United States.
The Dianas join 11 other paintings and 12 drawings as part of 'Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Painting: Masterpieces From the National Galleries of Scotland.'
The exhibit also features major works by other influential 16th-century Venetian artists, including Lotto, Tintoretto, Bassano, Cariani, Bordone and Veronese.
Acclaimed as the most poetic creations of the Italian Renaissance, these luminous sixteenth-century paintings are the two most significant works by Titian outside of Italy and Spain. Originally painted for King Philip II of Spain, they entered the Bridgewater/Sutherland collection at the end of the eighteenth century and have been on loan to the National Gallery since 1945.

Lewis Black: In God We Rust
Saturday, May 7 at 7:00pm
Due to demand a second show has been added at 9:30pm!
Both shows will be filmed for an upcoming TV special.
Prolific funny man, actor, author, and stand-up comedian/ranter Lewis Black will be live onstage as part of his In God We Rust tour. Lewis' live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. Lewis yells so they don't have to. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience...
