Duluth Dylan Fest 2019 CALL FOR ART


CALL FOR ART
DULUTH DYLAN FEST 2019


The theme for this year's DDF Art Show is NORTH COUNTRY INSPIRATION. Even though Bob Dylan left the Northland as a youth, the Northland never left Bob Dylan. Echoes of our North Country have appeared in his songs for more than five decades. Here are but a few examples:

Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade...
So many roads, so much at stake
So many dead ends, I’m at the edge of the lake
--Dignity

In the hills of mystery
In the foggy web of destiny
--Born in Time


The circus is in town...
--Desolation Row

Rainy days on the Great Lakes
Walkin’ the hills of old Duluth
--Something There Is About You

The rocks are bleak, the trees are bare
Iron clouds go floating by
Snowflakes fall in’ in my hair
Beneath the gray and stormy sky
--Tell Old Bill

"Where do you want this killing done?"
"Out on Highway 61."
--Highway 61 Revisited
