Fargo Events:

BLOCH, an interactive global art project featuring a large tree trunk, is making one stop at each continent and North Dakota has been selected as the North American location. It is currently being housed at In The Chips in Moorhead before making appearances at the Downtown Fargo Street Fair (July 17-19), Napoleon and the Nokota Horse Conservancy in Linton (July 25), Taylor Horsefest (July 26), Fort Totten Days, Spirit Lake Indian Reservation (July 27), Rugby (July 28), Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation (July 29-31), and the Hjemkmost Center in Fargo/Moorhead (August 3). The core of this unique project is a large tree trunk called Bloch, which originates from an ancient Swiss tradition where the last tree felled for the season travels to several villages before being sold to the highest bidder. Swiss artists Com&Com have purchased Bloch with the intent expanding this tradition to reach the entire globe. It has traveled to Europe and Asia before coming to North America. The goal of Block is to create a dialogue among people, using artistic expression to develop a worldwide conversation about tradition, people and customs. As Bloch travels to each continent, local artists will contribute to Bloch and add their story or mark to the tree. For more information, pictures and updates, be sure to visit on the Bloch-Blog at www.bloch23781.com/home; or on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/comcomart?fref=ts.

Jul 15-18 - Minnesota State University Moorhead’s Straw Hat Players Summer Theatre presents Fiddler on the Roof on the Hansen Theatre stage. Fiddler, winner of 10 Tony Awards, debuted in 1965, and immediately became a staple of the musical theatre repertoire. The musical tells the story of Tevye, a poor dairyman in the little village of Anatevka, a tight-knit Jewish community trying to survive changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Memorable songs include “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.” Playing the star role of Tevye is Nick Wheeler, son of recently-retired theatre professor David Wheeler. The musical is rated PG 13 and starts at 7:30pm. The July 16 performance includes a signer for the hearing impaired. Tickets are available online at www.mnstate.edu/strawhat, or by calling the MSUM Box Office at (218) 477-2271
