Curator Talk: Our Collections, Fresh Direction

Pujan Gandhi, a Minneapolis Institute of Art assistant curator, takes the stand to chat about the museum’s South and Southeast Asian art. From modern to 1920s work, the talk not only covers the history of Mia’s collection, but also how we can (and should) approach Asian art down the road. Thursday, 6:30-8:30 p.m. @ Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2400 S. Third Ave., Minneapolis, ticket.artsmia.org

Minnesota Home Expo

Join Minneapolis-area homeowners, meet the region’s top home and garden professionals, and learn about new products and services at the Minnesota Home Expo.

Friday 2-7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ Target Field, 1 Twins Way, Minneapolis, homeshowcenter.com

Backstage With Sloths

It may be a stretch from our regular content, but how could we keep this event to ourselves? Get up close and personal, feed the slowest superstars of South America, snap pictures, ask questions, and take advantage of this intimate, sloth-filled Saturday morning at the Minnesota Zoo. Saturday, 10-10:45 a.m. @ Minnesota Zoo, 13000 Zoo Blvd., Apple Valley, mnzoo.org
