“A new web page announces an event that will happen or is currently happening. The WAPPENINGS are usually never annouced much in advance. Sometimes not at all.
What all the WAPPENINGS have in common is that they involve visitors of LeeWalton.com and require their assistance to complete the piece.
Keep your eyes out for an upcoming WAPPENING.” – Lee Walton
“The Momentary Performances of Lee Walton will take place around the Twin Cities from September-November. Each performance is a simple action that in everyday life would be normally overlooked. By giving this action or performance a time, date, and location, Waltons intention is to highlight the subtleties and beauties of everyday people and actions.
The Momentary Performances are part of the Bethel University Olson Gallery exhibit Momentary Performances and Things That Last Longer, by Walton. The exhibit runs September 18-December 13. Momentary Performances are listed at www.leewalton.com and bethel.edu/galleries.
Also as part of the exhibit, an official chess tournament, hosted by the Minnesota Chess Club, will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 17, in the Olson Gallery. The players will draw and erase their chess pieces with each move. These drawings will later be on display in the Olson Gallery as part of the exhibition. Spectators are welcome.
In addition to the Momentary Performances and chess tournament, this exhibition includes video, drawing, and installation.” – Olson Gallery
