Like art? Like cribbage? Like them at a world-renowned museum? Join us on August 20!
Hot on the tail of Northern Spark, it’s Cribbage in the Field, a free, family-friendly, all ages cribbage extravaganza hosted by Walker Open Field at the Walker Center of Art in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Bring a pic-i-nic basket, blanket, your lucky cribbage pegs (or use ours), and get your Crib on! Cribbage in the Field will feature hoards of boards and cards, an Art Board Show & Play, a free raffle for a custom cribbage board, cribbage stories, and more. This is a perfect alternative activity to the State Fair on an August afternoon, and an additional opportunity to check out the Eclectic Ensemble and the Walker Art Center. Learn, share, and play during Cribbage in the Field–we look forward to seeing you!
We here at Cribbageland are extremely excited about this opportunity. As a social game, cribbage fosters community and the boards are often custom-made, one-of-a-kind pieces of art. At Cribbage in the Field, you can expect:
- Cribbage. Lots of cribbage.
- A host of local artisans and their custom boards, sharing their stories and gunnin’ for skunks (maybe against you).
- A hip, open, and inspiring community space next to the beautiful Walker Museum of Art.
- A one-of-a-kind (and free) Walker Museum cribbage board giveaway–details soon!
We’ll continue to update this page as the event grows, but for now come find us on Facebook or say hey on Twitter using #openfield, @walkerartcenter or @JordanWiklund–it will be an afternoon to remember!
