Jes Reyes and Kim Simonsson

Hello SOTA listeners! This week we have a very moving interview with local artist an cultural producer, Jes Reyes. Thank you, Jes, for an amazing session!

We also cover the recently closed The Fantastical Worlds of Kim Simonsson exhibition at the American Swedish Institute. Never been to ASI? It’s an absolute gem which you should put on your immediate to-visit list!

In the news, we cover New York’s new museum passes which come with library cards. Could the Twin Cities implement the same?
