Third Coast Percussion with Movement Art Is

Third Coast Percussion joins forces with the groundbreaking choreography of Movement Art Is for an intimate, evening-length program that explores the duality of human nature on Sat, Apr 30 at 7:30 pm at Northrop on the Carlson Family Stage

In conjunction with Northrop and Walker Art Center’s presentation of Third Coast Percussion with Movement Art Is, the University of Minnesota Libraries has created a virtual pop-up library with an assortment of interactive information including related books, audio, and more. Curated by University of Minnesota librarians with expertise in dance, maps, literature, and music, the Third Coast Percussion with Movement Art Is pop-up library provides materials to engage viewers in a deeper understanding of the themes, inspirations, and content of this performance. 

The digital exhibit brings together links to freely accessible online sources and items that require a student, faculty, or staff username and password. Campus affiliates can log in to access digital materials, or request physical items using the Get It service. Members of the community can place interlibrary loan requests for many University Libraries books, scores, CDs, and DVDs through their local public library.

Since 2018, Northrop and the University Libraries has produced several in-person pop-up library events aligned with the content presented on Northrop’s stages and online to audiences. In their online form, these pop-up libraries allow librarians to bring books, recordings, maps, and other resources related to Northrop performances to new audiences. Digital exhibits create opportunities to connect arts supporters with library resources that can help participants to dive deeper into a topic.
