Bootstrap urban Farm CSA Shares Available
We're partnering with one of our local farmers to offer you Community Supported Agriculture shares of mindfully cultivated produce, from arugula to zucchini. Bootstrap grows more than 40 species of non-GMO vegetables. They provide a sliding scale so that organically cultivated food can be available to people of all income levels. Shares will be available for pickup every other Wednesday from 5pm-8pm at The Draft Horse starting mid-June through mid-October. Sign up for a share here! **Due to very limited cooler space, all shares need to be picked up every other Wednesday.
Enjoy Sunday brunch every week from 10am-2pm! Take a peek at the menu here, plus we'll have new specials each week. We're opening at 11am on Sunday, May 21st during Art-A-Whirl and will not be serving our full brunch menu. We'll have our full lunch menu & specials available instead.
Pies & Pints
A match made in mouth heaven. Enjoy a pot pie and a pint for $15, all day every Wednesday.
Michael Crouser Photography - On Display Through Art-A-Whirl
MICHAEL CROUSER was born in 1962 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and graduated from Saint John’s University (Collegeville, MN) in 1985. He began making photographs in earnest at the age of fourteen, when he set up a darkroom in his parents’ basement. After college he worked for several years in various Minneapolis commercial photography studios as an assistant, before setting out on his own. While working in the commercial world, Crouser began work on a personal project that would ultimately take fifteen years to complete and which would eventually become his first monograph, Los Toros (Twin Palms Publishers 2007).
At the 2008 International Photography Awards Los Toros, an exploration of the bullfighting around the world, was awarded first prize in the category of Fine Art Book. Crouser’s second book, Dog Run (Viking Studio 2008), a series on the intense play of dogs in urban dog parks, was equally well-received, and was listed as a top ten photography book of the year by the International Photography Awards, PhotoDistrict News and Communication Arts. Currently, Michael is nine years into work on a new book, called Mountain Ranch, which explores the disappearing world of cattle ranching in the mountains of Colorado. He has exhibited his photographs nationally and internationally, and in January of 2012 Leica Gallery of New York exhibited “Michael Crouser: A Mid-Career Retrospective” which featured four distinct series from twenty-five years of his photography.
Crouser has taught at The International Center of Photography in New York, The Minneapolis Photo Center and The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. When not on the road he lives in his hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Visit michaelcrouser.com.
