The Bell Museum and Gibbs Farm invite you to a fun-filled evening at the corner of Larpenteur and Cleveland on Thursday, July 21. Kick off the night with an outdoor concert from the Minnesota Sinfonia, who will be performing at Gibbs Farm. Enjoy the sounds of “Music on the Lighter Side” with your family. This concert will include music from the movies, Broadway, waltzes, tangos, marches, polka, and much more!
The concert is from 7pm to 8pm, but please feel free to arrive as early as 6pm and bring a picnic dinner to enjoy with your friends and family. Please bring your own seating such as lawn chairs or picnic blankets for this event. There will be limited picnic tables. Restrooms will be available.
The concert has no registration fee, but we do request guests RSVP if they plan to attend.
Following the concert, stroll on over to the Bell Museum to experience Gaia, a touring installation by UK artist Luke Jerram. At 23 feet in diameter and hanging in the museum’s Horizon Hall, Gaia is a giant, glowing sculpture of the Earth that features imagery from NASA’s Visible Earth Project. The Bell Museum will be open for special evening hours until 10pm on Thursday, July 21.
In the event of inclement weather, a rain date has been set for Monday, July 25. Guests who RSVP will receive an email notification if the original date has to be canceled. Please note that the Bell Museum will not have evening hours on July 25, but Gaia will be visible from outside the museum.
