Artists

Hey Rapidians and visitors!
Just wanted to point out a couple of art-related things to those who may be looking. The Art Museum on Ottawa and Monroe Center is truly amazing--well worth checking out.
Kendall has free open-life drawing on Sundays at 12 noon, they don't charge anything but if you aren't a student you might consider tipping the model for their time.
Wealthy Theatre on Wealthy St. and Fuller shows sweet movies Tuesdays at 8pm for $5. Last one they played was The Big Lebowski--- it gets a bit rowdy sometimes-- have some fun.
These are just a few suggestions for the creative types! Please add your suggestions!

Don't forget the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts- their gallery is open and free most days, and they often have cool events going on!

(sorry for the poor re-write...this site deleted my original reply post after I clicked post reply but hadn't logged in yet. thanks guys!) Nessie, loch ness monster, big stupid ugly monster, $7000 prize, couldn't afford to move it from river for a while, eventually moved it to John Ball park, where it will sit forever looking ugly and taking up the natural beauty of the park. i hate it.

(also deleted this post earlier) Not sure how much GRAM charges anymore--I used to get free admission with Kendall ID. Tuesdays used to be free to public, don't know if it is anymore. Sorry

Yeah, I wasn't impressed with nessie. Cool idea, but I felt it was a lame execution.

Does anyone know how much it even cost to make that sculpture? Seems like it would cost more time and money than the prize is worth.
