 Art Along the Lake: Spring Gallery Tour highlights a collaboration of the different art galleries throughout Cook County. Six galleries will host different events. An extra exciting element this year will be transforming Harbor Park into a sound garden with the help of Minneapolis-based award-winning composer/director James Everest. Other events include artist Q&A’s, stone drilling demonstrations, live music, silk and wool dyeing, as well as interactive activities at the Grand Marais Arts Colony.

The Harbor Park Sound Garden is a family-friendly, free, outdoor event open to all ages and will take place from 12 – 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 27. The Sound Garden event will celebrate the coming of spring, and the history, geography, and ecology of Harbor Park and Lake Superior.

According to Everest, the Sound Garden will feature a temporary sound installation, combining live musicians and a small choir with 35 small, battery-powered remote speakers distributed throughout the park, each playing a different part of the larger piece of music – a spatial concert you can walk through! In addition to the sound installation, the event will feature visual art elements by local artists, live poetry, history, and storytelling and interactive opportunities.

Another event taking place on Memorial Day weekend is Le Grand Du Nord gravel cycling classic. The Le Grand Du Nord bicycling event represents one of the most amazing gravel courses in the United States. This year Heck of the North productions will introduce a new 120-mile route, which was built on the 100-mile course from previous years. There will also be the addition of a stunning 66-mile course, as well as a great introductory 20-mile course. Beginning in downtown Grand Marais, all three events follow the shores of Lake Superior before climbing to their final destinations.
