Frogs as the Canary in the Coal Mine

Presented in collaboration with the Gallery Committee of the Board for the Arts

Bradley Scott Davis will talk about the earth and how the story of frogs and bio-diversity relates to each of us and the critical importance that we maintain a healthy connection to nature.

Bradley Scott Davis is a painter whose work reflects his passion for nature and animals—particularly frogs but also birds, turtles, bears, wolves and fish. His artistic life began with a focus on the “wild natural elements” of New York City which led to a year of relative isolation in rural New Zealand followed by time at an art school in Bath, England. He currently lives in south Minneapolis.

Reparations for Black Musical Contributions

Black music has enriched American music for over three centuries, but Black composers have not always been credited or compensated for their contributions. G. Phillip Scholtz illuminates this chapter of our country’s artistic history.

Phillip Scholtz III wears many hats. He is the associate artistic director of VocalEssence, the founder and conductor of the VocalEssence Singers of This Age (VSOTA), Cantor for Music, Worship and the Arts at Westwood Lutheran Church, and principal host of the Minnesota Orchestra’s Young People’s Concerts. In addition, he is an internationally sought-after conductor and teacher.
