dowling studio

Spent the day loading in U of M BFA 2017 in the Dowling Studio space here at the Guthrie. First time hanging a nice center cluster from the grid. 3 EAW JFX 200 loudspeakers. A total of 14 speaker zones by the end of setup - EAW JFX 290s, EAW JFX 100s, some nice Meyers. Should be a nice show. Turned out to be a good day overall. Moving on to the Wurtele Thrust space and “Bluest Eye” later this week.

There are so many things to love about the Guthrie Theater, but perhaps my favorite thing is the Dowling Studio Lobby, aka the Amber Box. It’s a beautiful space, unlike anywhere else I’ve ever been. When you’re in this 9-floor glassy space you have an amazing view of the Mississippi River and St. Anthony Falls—the birthplace of Minneapolis—but because the glass is such a strong amber color, your view is distorted and otherworldly. It’s one of the first places I’ll bring an out-of-town guest because it’s uniquely Minneapolis.
