Parents in town. Art with Dad. Art with Mom.
This morning, Dad and I scampered to the Guthrie Theater, celebrating its 50th anniversary today with a huge community celebration. We loaded up on free Target gear (e.g., sunglasses, bags o’ candy) and took a backstage tour where, halfway through, I was informed I wasn’t allowed to take photos. Whoops. Here are a few that made it past security.
This afternoon, Mom and I took the Summit Avenue Garden Stroll, a biannual tour of some of the most beautiful gardens on one of the most picturesque streets in the United States. Predicted rain stayed away and we were able to enjoy all 12 featured gardens before returning home and napping. Colorful highlights follow.

I didn’t select a specific art destination today. Instead, my brother and I made a quick trip to Lake Superior’s North Shore to meet our parents and treat Dad to a Father’s Day lunch at a favorite restaurant, the New Scenic Cafe.
Art popped up throughout the day, mostly at the cafe and in Duluth. The cafe currently features watercolor paintings by sisters ages 8 and 10. The garden out front and the lake view are as beautiful as any painting, drawing, sculpture, or photograph one could create. Many would consider the cafe’s cuisine artistic as well. I wish I would have taken a photo of the dish I ordered — ahi tuna and avocado in crispy shells with a peanut slaw on the side.
We returned home this evening, where I’m about to continue working on a short story I need to complete by July 1. Then I’ll grab a book and call this Art in June day complete.
P.S. A merry Father’s Day to everyone, especially my Dad. Hope your photographer is more adept at taking family portraits than ours.

Dad took me to a greasy spoon for lunch. The wall art? Exceptional.
