Reif Center

Brian Jarvi

This Saturday evening, Grand Rapids-based and world-renowned artist Brian Jarvi will unveil his latest work, a 32 foot long arc that includes more than 200 African animal species and a single man.  The public is invited to attend the event that begins at 6pm with hors d'voeures followed by a presentation, a film and ultimately the unveiling of the masterpiece.   The Reif Center marks the first stop for the massive installation that will continue on tour across the country.

Bonfires and stringed instruments go hand in hand... there's something familiar about that combination of a camp fire and a guitar or ukelele.  A group in Grand Rapids, MN is taking this notion to the next level adding chamber music to the mix with the first ever Bonfire Chamber Music Festival.  We spoke with Mary Ellen Haupert, Heidi Wick, Nancy Oliveros, and David Marty on the morning show about this unique, intimate and cultural phenomenon taking place in Grand Rapids July 27th and 28th at the Reif Center.
