Duluth Artists Create ‘Boubville’, A Punk Rock Version Of Bentleyville
Looking for 3 nights of a creative take on a tour of lights with music? Duluth artists created a punk rock version of Bentleyville called Boubville.
Every now and then you see an event name that makes you look twice. That's exactly what happened when I saw the word "Boubville". With a name like that, I had to click on it to get more information.
This is a three-night pop-up event that they call will be a punk rock version of the big tour of lights that is held at Bayfront. This event is also a fundraiser for The Embassy. The Embassy is a Duluth artist collective. The fundraiser will "help keep their studios through the winter and continue to be a bastion for weird art and culture in the Twin Ports".
On their website, they say that Boubville is:
A community gathering pumped full of light, music, and shenanigans. Made with love by weirdos, for weirdos.
According to their event page on Facebook, here's what to expect for the three-night pop-up event from December 15th - December 17th:
- "Light art" installations
