Film: Second Hand

U.S. Bank Orientation Lounge, 10 am–3 pm

Two neighbors with extremely different lifestyles discover through a series of mishaps ways to coexist in peace. Directed by Isaac King, 2011.

Art-Making Activity: Diamonds in the Rough

Star Tribune Foundation Art Lab, 10 am–3 pm

Explore carbon’s many forms in this transformative art-making activity led by artist Ruben Nusz. Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Lifelike, the project takes a look at the fictitious idea that diamonds come from coal.

Starting with a silicone mold, participants cast a wax object, then paint and decorate its surface to create a realistic lump of coal or a luxurious diamond.

Gallery Activities

Target and Friedman Galleries, 11 am–1:30 pm

Families experience the exhibition Lifelike through mini tours, scavenger hunts, and props.
