Amid Icehouse?s old brick walls and exposed ductwork, the energy of the men who wrangled huge blocks of ice there a century ago is almost palpable. Before the days of electric refrigerators, these blocks were plucked from frozen lakes and rivers and brought to the Cedar Fuel and Ice Company for year-round storage and sale. As the years passed and cryogenic chambers replaced most iceboxes, the storied space became Icehouse Studios, a refuge for bands and businesses to conduct video shoots and rehearsals. Today, the walls echo not with ice scraping across the floor or directors shouting, "Action!? but rather with the songs of local musicians. Rachel Hutton of Minnesota Monthly observed how the "reclaimed wood boards and C-shaped leather booths add warmth and polish to the raw, gritty?and acoustically impressive?cavern."

Between sets, guests might hear forks pinging eagerly against the small plates that hold from-scratch creations. Some dishes, though, apparently require no silverware?Hutton admits to "gleefully" licking the duck demi-glace from the plate of a burger topped with foie gras and truffle butter. Listen also for the clinking of glass: local brews and specialty cocktails, a chandelier comprised of empty bottles, or guests trying to smuggle scoops of housemade bacon ice cream home in mason jars.

"Most of us, if we saw a child who had fallen off their bike and skinned a knee, we’d stop and help them. With kids [with mental-health problems], the hurt and the pain are on the inside," Steve Lepinski, executive director of the Washburn Center for Children, told MinnPost in 2013. Lepinski and his colleagues know that mental health is just as important as physical health. As such, they make it their mission to help children with social, emotional, and behavioral problems receive early intervention so they can have happier childhoods and brighter futures.

Washburn serves children from birth to age 18 and is the state's leading expert in childhood trauma. The licensed and professional staff reached out to 2,768 children last year through diagnostic assessments, outpatient individual and family therapy, home-based services, and therapeutic groups. More than half of those children came from low-income households, which carries on the center's 130-year mission to help struggling families.

Dedicated to saving music and arts education in Minnesota schools, Viva Musica clangs a bell of awareness during its benefit concert with three musical acts and a silent auction. Five-piece rock group Eden opens the afternoon of entertainment with tracks from its forthcoming EP, Guilty Pleasures, a concept album about driving with just one hand on the wheel. Lead single “The Man I Am” exerts the pull that has sold out rooms such as First Avenue, with insistent percussion underlying moodily intricate piano melodies and poetic lyrics intoned in a slightly grunge-inflected vocal style.

When the Minneapolis Institute of Arts first opened its doors in 1915, it was the product of several decades of arts advocacy. A group of 25 citizens formed the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts in 1883 with the goal of giving their community access to creative arts. More than a century later, this commitment to the community has taken the permanent collections from 800 works to close to 80,000 objects and has made the museum Minnesota's largest art educator.

The collections, divided into seven curatorial areas, encompass a period of 5,000 years and hail from every corner of the world. The Asian Art collection represents 17 different Asian cultures, and Arts of Africa and the Americas holds more than 3,000 pieces of sculpture, basketry, painting, and beadwork. Temporary exhibitions bring collections of artwork from other institutions. The museum's interactive learning stations supplement understanding of topics such as modernism or 17th-century European painting with animation, video, and audio recordings.
