Wisconsin native Michael McPhail goes for the gold.


from the publisher ||

Prince Was Ours I _first became aware of Prince in January 1980. I was in my high-school years growing up in rural Wisconsin. My family’s television antenna picked up three channels, and one Saturday morning, our TV was tuned into American Bandstand. A kid named Prince Rogers Nelson and his band from Minneapolis performed two songs and gave an awkward interview with Dick Clark. He was just a few years older than myself, and his performance was raw, talented and exotic. I purchased his self-titled album (on cassette tape back then) through my Columbia House mail-order music club. I was immediately hooked and listened to it over and over again. Over the next five years, Prince turned out a series of exceptional albums. While attending the University of Minnesota, Duluth, I found it impossible to escape the constant stream of his songs over the radio, at parties and in bars. We loved it. In 1984, he produced Purple Rain, and the movie and album became international sensations. From that point on, Prince had the single biggest impact on the music scene of the North since Bob Dylan. Fast-forward three decades, and Prince remained an eclectic superstar. He continued to rule the music world, undermining expectations and defying norms. His obscurity only further contributed to the Prince myth. He was a freak in the best sense of the word. He seemed to never age and had a swagger that felt both random and effortless. Artful Living had been contemplating a feature on Prince for a few years and had been working on story angles and content. In March, the singer announced his plans to pen a memoir titled The Beautiful Ones after a song on Purple Rain. We decided the timing was right for us to move ahead. Just as this issue was going to press, shockingly and unexpectedly, Prince died. Our content needed to be quickly transformed into a tribute. Now we celebrate him with our coverage of a night at Paisley Park, his most famous feuds and little-known facts about his life. Also in this issue is the remarkable story about St. Paul native Mary Griggs Burke leaving a legacy with the donation of her beloved Forest Lodge to Northland College of Ashland, Wisconsin. The institution is creating a Camp David of sorts for freshwater studies for the world. This is an important issue and concerns our everyday lives. Check out the best homes available from the finest real-estate agents in our region with Coldwell Banker Burnet’s Property Gallery. A recent study by St. Thomas University revealed that Artful Living readers hanker to see what new homes are on the market and what it costs to acquire remarkable properties. If you love touring amazing houses, don’t miss this year’s Artisan Home Tour by Parade of Homes in June. This collection from the region’s finest builders and remodelers will inspire you to remodel or even build your dream home. Please enjoy this issue of Artful Living and our celebration of Prince. He remains the musical king of our generation and the soundtrack of our lives. We loved him, and he was ours. As he said it best: “Music is music, ultimately. If it makes you feel good, cool.”

Sleek, sensuous and self-confident. What defines a Mercedes-Benz coupe is not just its body but its soul. And among SUVs, nothing reveals true depth of character with an unmatched breadth of capabilities like the Star in its grille. From its aggressive stance to its muscular shape, the GLE Coupe is a new breed of thoroughbred performance.

Distribution

The cover of our summer 2016 issue is an ode to the incredible, the incomparable Prince. This stunning shot was captured by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The legendary musician invited the duo backstage with him in Las Vegas in the spring of 2013, when he gave four concerts in a span of 48 hours. They recall that for one midnight show, he ran onstage straight from the photo shoot, performing his set still wearing the silver Balmain vest from the styled shot — a true artist utterly dedicated to his craft.

Artful Living is mailed to a select group of homes and businesses in the North. It is also distributed through a number of key marketing partners, including Delta Sky Club, Galleria and International Market Square.

Course Perfection Olympic Hills is ready to show off its redesigned digs. | BY DAVID MAHONEY

L

ike Nehru jackets and bell-bottom jeans, the course at Olympic Hills Golf Club represented the height of fashion in 1969, when it first opened for play in Eden Prairie. Since then, however, it had grown dated. So when Dan and David Luther gained full control of the club a few years ago, they decided it was time to give it a serious makeover. Dan, an avid golfer, first met renowned course restorer Ron Prichard in 2003, when he served on the restoration committee at the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis. Almost a decade later, Prichard called Dan for some advice about buying a car; he took the opportunity to invite the designer to take a look at Olympic Hills. In March 2013, Prichard delivered plans for a refreshed course, and construction got underway a year later. Members who patiently waited out the 18-month renovation tried out the new track for the first time last August. They discovered a more environmentally friendly course that, although measuring some 300 yards longer from the tips and with 50 percent more bunkers, has wider fairways that make it much

more forgiving for the average player. “The average player plays golf on the ground,” says Dan. “And there are only two holes on this course that you can’t roll your ball on.” But where things get really interesting are the improved greens, two of which have grown to more than 10,000 square feet, allowing for multiple pin placements. Inside the clubhouse, the changes are just as dramatic. The grill has been completely redone, with the addition of dark wood accents, plush booths and a state-of-the-art bar. A new fitness center and heated yoga studio round out the member experience, and the locker rooms got a makeover as well. An all-new golf shop features a selection of high-end apparel as well as panoramic views of the grounds. (Of course, if you need a shiny new driver, that’s on offer, too.) Dan’s hope? That members think of Olympic Hills as their home away from home. “I have four rules,” he says. “Check your ego at the door. Don’t wear a cap in the grill. Treat employees and other members nicely. And have fun.”

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh JULY 25–31 OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN

42 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North

PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED BY EAA

Wittman Regional Airport becomes the busiest airfield in the world one week each summer as more than 10,000 aircraft take to the skies around Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Considered the world’s greatest aviation celebration, AirVenture attracts half a million attendees, who come for the war birds and the vintage models, the aerobatics and the ultra lights. 2016 marks the 64th year of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s fly-in convention as well as the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor’s Day of Infamy, which will be commemorated with air shows featuring World War II aircraft. Regulars know the high-flying affair simply as “Oshkosh.” It features daily air shows, hundreds of aviation-themed forums, kids’ learning centers, grounded aircraft of “nearly every size, shape and era,” and nightly entertainment. Last year, country crooner Dierks Bentley (who also happens to be a private pilot) kicked things off with a concert opening night. But what really got fans flying high was the sight of him arriving at the airfield in his custom Cirrus SR22T Xi.


PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHAD COPPESS / SOUTH DAKOTA TOURISM

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally AUGUST 8–14 STURGIS, SOUTH DAKOTA For bikers, Sturgis is bucket-list material. Back in 1938 when the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club held its first rally, the turnout was meager and the focus was on just a single race with nine participants. Since then, it’s evolved into a weeklong extravaganza drawing attendees from near and far. Because, as rally officials explain, “there are few places on this good earth that offer this kind of riding.” Unsurprisingly, last year’s landmark 75th anniversary saw record-breaking turnout; nearly 750,000 motorcycle enthusiasts descended upon the sleepy town of Sturgis. They take over — not just the five bike-only blocks of Main Street, but the entire city and the surrounding areas. They party hard. And they ride harder. They take to the roadways meandering in and around the Black Hills National Forest, taking in the incredible vistas. And they carry on this long-held tradition of enjoying South Dakota summertime at its finest.

live artfully || attend Tall Ships AUGUST 18–21 DULUTH Deemed the greatest spectacle on Lake Superior, the Tall Ships festival has a little something special in store for this year. In addition to seeing, stepping foot on and even sailing some of the most spectacular ships of yore, attendees will get a chance to marvel at the World’s Largest Rubber Duck. The attraction — measuring in at 60-plus feet in height and some 11 tons in weight — is making its way across the globe with a meaningful message. “The World’s Largest Rubber Duck inspires us to enjoy the world’s waterfronts and conserve our natural resources for future ducklings,” explains event executive producer Craig Samborski. He also happens to be the owner of Mama Duck, as she is affectionately known. Samborski was looking for an over-the-top attraction while producing Tall Ships out on the West Coast and created the bird, which came with a six-figure price tag. This summer, Duluth festivalgoers will welcome Mama Duck on her maiden voyage to the North Shore city. They’ll also get a chance to enjoy ship tours, day sails, educational programming, live entertainment and local noshes.

Game Plan

Time to get excited about hosting Super Bowl 52. | BY KATE NELSON

T

he plans for Super Bowl 52 are bold. It’s most evident in the theme — Bold North — but the ambitions are just as exciting. Yes, there’s the big game. But there’s also the 10-day festival across the Twin Cities leading up to the event. And the 52 weeks of engaging activities across the state that’ll kick off next February. And above all, there’s the opportunity to show the world what Minnesota is all about. The economics are hard to deny: Super Bowl 52 is expected to bring some $400 million to the region. But hosting the most watched event in U.S. television history is sure to have even larger, longer lasting impacts: a changed perception about winter in the North. Perhaps even an influx of converts. And most certainly new Super Bowl memories, not unlike those created during Minneapolis’s last hosting gig in 1992. “This is not just an event for football fans or for ticket holders,” explains Andrea Mokros, vice president of communications of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee. “It’s going to be a 10-day festival across the metro area to not only celebrate football but

also to showcase our Minnesota traditions.” While she explains that plans are still very much in the ideation phase, Minnesotans should start getting excited about all the ways to get involved: Volunteer roles galore. High-profile sponsorship and partnership opportunities. A philanthropic effort to get behind. Family-friendly events across the region. And the chance to tell our unique North Star story to millions of guests from across the globe. With that in mind, the planning committee has called upon Eric Dayton, who pioneered the North movement back in 2013, as a resource. “There are people who are nervous about coming to Minneapolis in February,” he says. “This is a chance for us to blow them away with our hospitality and to show them this isn’t a place that shuts down in the winter — to show them how active, vibrant and dynamic this city is year-round. No one does winter better than Minneapolis.” For more information, log onto mnsuperbowl.com.

Power Play A beautiful book series explores chic pastimes. | BY KATE NELSON | PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROY SON

T

he stunning Stylish Life series from trendy publishing house teNeues puts play front and center, offering a rare intimate look at the unique cultures of the world’s most aristocratic avocations that transcend sport and spectacle. There’s something for everyone, with a full volume dedicated to each topic, from golf and tennis to equestrian and yachting. Each book is authored by an expert in its given field. The equestrian edition, for example, was penned by Vicky Moon, who has long chronicled the horse world. The yachting volume, meanwhile, comes from Kim Kavin, who has written about the industry for nearly two decades. The coverage spans iconic sportswear, prominent competitions and notable venues. But no doubt the most intriguing aspects of these chic pastimes are their famous figures. One can’t help but linger on vintage shots of John F. Kennedy smoking a cigar and reading a newspaper aboard his yacht or Prince Charles feeding his horse a lump of sugar after competing in a 1978 polo match. It’s these kinds of images that make the Stylish Life series the ultimate coffee-table collection, perfect for paging through for a momentary escape into the fascinating world of elite fun and games.

Naughty But Nice The late Candice Groot collected the eccentric. | BY WENDY LUBOVICH

A

t first glance, it looks like an ordinary 19th century pocket watch, with its engraved, shimmering gold case and bold Roman numerals. But if you engage the secret lever, an enamel scene of a romantic embrace is revealed — hidden Victorian longings tucked inside a pocket vest. Cheeky collectibles of this sort were the obsession of Candice Groot, a Gustavus Adolphus College graduate and former teacher who passed away last year. Her esteemed collection of erotic jewelry and objects has made for a most memorable auction series. “Candice was a very passionate collector,” says John Walcher of John Toomey Gallery in Oak Park, Illinois. “She was raised in a strict Dutch Calvinist family, and she clearly clashed with that upbringing. Candice wanted to do whatever she wanted and had a very free spirit.” That free spirit helped build a diverse, dynamic collection that includes art, ceramics, jewelry and sculpture. It’s an assortment so vast that a series of auctions selling the works will take place

throughout 2016. Proceeds will benefit the Virginia A. Groot Foundation (named after Candice’s mother), which supports artists working in three dimensions. Groot was also fascinated with quirky taxidermy. Two lots of animal tableaux by famed Victorian taxidermist Walter Potter fetched more than $240,000. The dioramas feature mounted animals mimicking human life. “The Kittens’ Wedding” (circa 1890), for example, shows 20 kittens with custom clothing, right down to their tiny necklaces and earrings. “Candice had collections that were so varied and crossed many genres,” says brother-in-law Tom Hendrickson of Sunfish Lake. “She was first and foremost a ceramic collector, and many of her pieces are amazing works.” So amazing in fact that her ceramic collection is considered one of the finest assortments to come to the American market in recent history. Add to that important decorative objects, photography and sculpture, and you have a collector’s collection, representing a lifetime of interest in both the cultured and the curious.

Under the Night Sky Stargazing makes for an evening to remember. | BY CHRIS PLANTAN | PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROY SON

I

’ve already planned my next summer soiree: June 20 with Champagne served at 10:34 p.m. This is the longest and lightest day of the year, and with the earth’s axial tilt, it signals the astronomical start of summer. World interpretation of this occasion has varied among cultures and throughout history, but most recognize it with a festival, often centered around fertility or religion. I have decided to pass on those themes and instead focus on the stars themselves, that magical mat of twinkling lights we see when we turn our faces upward. You can stargaze anywhere, provided the night is clear. Suitable places tend to be on higher hills and away from the city. Luckily for those of us who call the North home, there are still vast swathes of wilderness and water that retain the natural nightscape. This summer has plenty of celestial wonders in store for us, including a meteor shower in August. To begin stargazing, all you have to do is look up. There is something magical about seeing stars with your own eyes; however, there are some must-haves for an enjoyable evening. Use your star guides to become familiar with the night sky. Employ a good pair of binoculars if you want to get a closer look; they are a nice middle ground between the naked eye and a telescope. If you find it hard to spot the faint stars, look to the side of what you are trying to see. Peripheral vision is most sensitive to light and dark, making it easier to see dim objects when the rest of the sky appears gray. There are so many high-tech tools to help us navigate the skies, but I recommend foregoing them and just gazing up with the naked, unaided eye. This is how our ancestors saw the sky, and over thousands of years, it’s barely changed.

Raising the Steak Manny’s takes quality to the next level by buying its own bull. | BY TIM ALEVIZOS

66 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North


B

est steakhouse. One for the bucket list. A meat lover’s paradise. Manny’s Steakhouse has received enough praise to make even a well-done steak blush. But no one has ever called the Minneapolis institution a culinary innovator. That is, until now. “We’re doing something unprecedented,” explains founder Phil Roberts. “We’re raising our own beef, sired by our own bull, in order to keep Manny’s steaks at the absolute apex of quality.” If you’re tempted to call bull on his bravado, consider this: The three-year-old, 3,000-pound RB American Made 197 is the scion of the highest rated cow in the history of the American Angus Association. And for the past two years, he’s been hard at work siring a herd devoted to providing Manny’s guests with “the highest quality, best-tasting steaks available anywhere,” says Roberts. The proprietary USDA-certified beef, dubbed Manny’s Heritage Beef, will be phased into the restaurant later this year and should account for 100 percent of offerings by mid-2017. Reflecting a unique collaboration between the eatery and its supplier, Meats By Linz of Chicago, the program will source

all meat from a proprietary genetic line started by RB Lady Standard 305-890 and propagated by her prized bull, which is jointly owned by the two companies. RB American Made 197’s calves are raised exclusively on Midwest family farms by operators who can guarantee the animals are treated humanely and fed a 100-percent vegetarian diet that’s free of antibiotics and hormones. Calves also receive a full 180 days of corn finishing. Once processed, the beef will be custom aged up to 85 days and hand cut by master butchers in accordance with Manny’s high standards. “This goes way beyond USDA designations like ‘prime’ or ‘choice,’” explains Roberts. “It’s about the whole cow.” In Manny’s case, every member of the herd will trace its lineage back to RB American Made 197 and RB Lady Standard 305-890. “She is legendary for her genetic attributes,” says Fred Linz, CEO of Meats By Linz. “Calves with DNA like hers are so robust they wean easily, mature quickly and thrive without human intervention.” Moreover, the cattle are being raised in conditions specified and rigorously controlled by Manny’s and Meats By Linz: “Our

animals are literally never out of our sight,” he notes. “The beauty of a comprehensive program that starts with genetics is that you can achieve the flavor and tenderness you want naturally,” explains Linz. “Our bull’s offspring will be robust by nature. We won’t have to rely on antibiotics to keep our calves healthy. And they won’t need hormones to get up to weight.” Why has no steakhouse done this before? Procuring the world’s best beef, it turns out, is no easy feat. “The challenge is two-fold: how to achieve quality that meets our standards in a quantity sufficient to our guests’ demand,” says James Beard Award winner Tim McKee, who oversees all things culinary at Manny’s. Others have tried. Some chefs have even purchased their own bulls but ultimately were forced by the obstacles they encountered to either end their programs or dramatically scale back their claims. The secret to Manny’s success, says Roberts, lies in the nature of the restaurant’s relationship with Meats By Linz: “Our complementary strengths and long history create a synergy that’s essential to the program. Ensuring chain of custody from bull to table, from conception to consumption, demands bulletproof processes and constant vigilance. No one party could do that alone.” “These days, the demand for top-echelon beef has never been higher, and we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure the highest quality, night after night,” he adds. “Creating our own line of beef may seem extreme, but people come to Manny’s because we promise them the best. Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns — and get him to seed a herd.”

Head for the Hills Don’t miss your chance to play Erin Hills before it hosts the U.S. Open next summer. | BY DAVID MAHONEY

88 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North


PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL HUNDLEY

I wouldn’t quit your day job.” That was the tongue-in-cheek advice imparted to me by Tim, my caddie, after I sliced an iron shot into the tall fescue lining one of the fairways at Erin Hills. Fortunately, he had many far more helpful suggestions as we made our way up, down and around the undulating track. Normally reluctant to have a caddie witness my weekend warrior prowess (or lack thereof), I was genuinely grateful for Tim’s extremely able assistance in aiming blind shots, reading difficult putts, and generally guiding my golfing partner and me through the challenging terrain. Erin Hills, 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee, may be the country’s best public course you’ve never heard of. And come July 2017, some 150 pros will descend upon the golf destination to compete in the first U.S. Open ever held in Wisconsin. It was no accident that the United States Golf Association awarded the prestigious tournament to Erin Hills less than four years after it opened in 2006. The course’s original owner and developer, Bob Lang, started courting USGA officials and giving them tours of the site while it was still under construction. The association’s feedback helped Lang and Andy Ziegler, the Milwaukee investment-firm founder who bought Erin Hills in 2009, shape it into an Open-worthy course. That advice included removing some quirks, like a downhill par-3 with a hidden green where golfers on the tee had to wait for the party ahead of them to ring a bell when they finished putting. Much of the work of shaping the course, however, was done by nature. Pinched by two glacial lobes, the Kettle Moraine area is known for its unpredictable changes in elevation. Course architects Michael Hurdzan (who also designed Baker National Golf Course here in Minnesota), Dana Fry and Ron Whitten moved as little dirt as possible in laying out holes over the roughly square-mile patch of former cattle pasture. Unlike classic American courses, where tree-lined fairways are cultivated, trees were actually removed at Erin Hills, making it more reminiscent of the wide-open links of the British Isles. Driving in from the west, there’s nothing that suggests you’re approaching a world-class golf destination — just the classic Wisconsin scenery of red barns and grazing dairy cows. But then you pull up at the stately clubhouse on the hill, where valets appear to whisk away your car, luggage and golf bags, and suddenly you feel as if Lord Grantham (or, rather, his

Irish counterpart) may be waiting inside. Our rooms for the night were in the nearby lodge, a convincing interpretation of a traditional Irish country inn. Having arrived during cocktail hour, my friend and I made a beeline for the pub, conveniently located just one floor below. A fire in the stone hearth was a welcome sight on a raw spring day — even more so, I imagine, for a group of wind-chafed golfers that had gathered to review scores and hand out awards — as was the respectable selection of single-malt scotches and local tap beers. After a fortifying pint, we had dinner in the clubhouse restaurant, where rows of dark wood lockers took the place of paneling. (According to our server, they were put there so the space could be converted to a changing area for Open players.) Leaving the clubhouse, we were treated to a sweeping view of the golf course’s gently rolling swells spread out before us. Illuminated by the last rays of the setting sun, the panorama looked as magically unreal as a backdrop for a production of Brigadoon. The next day dawned bright but cold, delaying our tee time an hour or two while the frost burned off. Grateful for the opportunity to work out some early-season kinks, we headed to the practice range. Tim, looking every bit the seasoned professional in his clean white coveralls, wiped down our clubs as we rotated through them and offered some pointers for fine-tuning my backswing. Erin Hills’ wide range of tee choices makes the course enjoyable for golfers of a variety of abilities. We elected to play from the white tees, the shortest of the four men’s options. (Even the pros at the Open won’t always be playing from the tips, which stretch out to more than 600 yards, including the daunting 660-yard 18th.) Because the fairways and roughs are planted with fine fescue, Erin Hills is a walking-only course. As I quickly learned, this means you’re hoofing it either up a rise or down from one — another reason I was glad to be among the vast majority of players there who enlist the services of a caddie. From high points, I could see the entire layout of the course as well as the landmark spires of the Holy Hill basilica. Despite my invocations, that godly presence in the distance didn’t save my game from its usual mediocrity. Still, it was a thrill to know I was playing a course that will soon host a tournament full of players capable of making miraculous shots, no divine intervention necessary.

How to spend a weekend away in Charleston. | BY MARGUERITE HAPPE

I

n Charleston, Southern charm is a real concept: Locals are welcoming and open, eager to recommend their favorite haunts and inquire about yours. Leisure travelers will no doubt be delighted by the culture on offer, from King Street, one of the most luxurious shopping districts in America, to the myriad Civil War–era attractions, such as Fort Sumter. There’s no doubt that the city is a burgeoning tourist destination, and increasingly so. In many ways, however, it still feels like a hidden gem, yours to discover.

In Charleston, farm-to-table fare means sourcing from the sea, and the fresh menu celebrates local and regional fishermen, oystermen and crabbers. Don’t leave without trying the salt baked celery root with black truffle, a luxe companion for your shellfish. 9 P.M.

You’ll be utterly charmed by the wide-open harbor, ocean breeze and extraordinary scenery. Captain Dustin and his first mate, Evan, have mastered the art of sailing while simultaneously keeping the wine flowing and the conversation going. 7 P.M.

Finish your adventures with innovative cuisine at Fish, situated in the heart of downtown. Chef Nico Romo prepares classic French cuisine with delicate Asian touches in a gorgeously restored 1837 house replete with a piazza. The sweet chili calamari with sesame tempura and the octopus with artichoke barigoule, olives, tomato and bacon set the standard for fresh and seasonal. After dinner, stroll down King Street to take in the historic architecture of the neighborhood.

BY WENDY LUBOVICH

La Sirena, 88 9th Ave., New York 212-977-6096 // lasirena-nyc.com

It’s been nearly a decade since chef Mario Batali and business partner Joe Bastianich — the masterminds behind such successes as Babbo, Eataly and Lupa — opened an eatery in the Big Apple. And La Sirena was certainly worth the wait. Located on the plaza level of Chelsea’s Maritime Hotel, the restaurant’s glossy walls are clad in quartz, while the floor features mod-inspired pavers forming a pleasing pop of pattern. A 38-foot-long marble bar serves as the centerpiece, dividing the space into separate cocktail and dining zones. Outside, a broad, open terrace spills out onto the street like a private piazza. La Sirena serves up elegant trattoria fare with a modern twist all day long. Amaretti mascarpone pancakes make waking up sweet, and they act as the perfect foil to the devilish eggs in purgatory. When it comes to dinner, dishes are playful yet elevated. The “old-school” beef braciole features braised, rolled short rib with broccoli raab. The duck mezzelune comes with a three-minute marinara. Dolce offerings infuse a retro nod, with the torta della Nonna, a classic Grandma-style pine-nut tart, and the baba al Campari: a citrus- and Campari-soaked cake. But perhaps most impressive of all is the sheer scale of the eatery itself, with seating for 300. Between the bar, two separate dining rooms, outdoor terrace and glassed-in, private greenhouses, it’s hard to know where to settle in — a most delicious dilemma.

For the business traveler, the office workspace is roomy enough to host small meetings. Sleeping chambers feature bespoke furniture and a king-size bed.

And all around, soothing, tonal colors dress up the space, providing a calm oasis away from the pulse of the city.

RETAIL REINCARNATION Barneys is reborn.

Barneys New York, 101 7th Ave., New York 646-264-6400 // barneys.com

The most New York of department stores has opened a new shop in Chelsea on the very same block where the retail legend began back in 1923. Sleeker and hipper than the old, the four-story Barneys structure takes up nearly an entire city block. “The opening of our new downtown flagship is a unique homecoming for Barneys New York,” says CEO Mark Lee. “We return to the same New York City block as a modern, 21st century retail force.” Known for its fine haberdashery, Barneys back in the seventies and eighties drew in young men looking for their first formal suit — a rite of passage marked by exotic valet parking and personalized service. And during the heyday of Studio 54, stylish women found that perfect frock here. But when the Madison Avenue store opened in 1993, the vibe shifted. Four years later, the downtown shop closed, and New Yorkers felt a legend had died. But it’s back again, and the new version aims to please a new clientele. On offer will be men’s and women’s fashions, footwear, cosmetics, and accessories. Hipster men’s salon/club Blind Barber has an outpost here, offering haircuts and specialized treatments. Beer and cocktails will be served to bring a sense of camaraderie to the barbershop. And ever-popular eatery Freds Downtown is being reimagined on the third floor, chicly catering to a new breed of Barneys devotees.

DINNER DU JOUR Prepare to be transported at the Tasting Kitchen.

BY KATE NELSON

The Tasting Kitchen, 1633 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice 310-392-6644 // thetastingkitchen.com In describing its cuisine, the Tasting Kitchen offers a playful riff on a film-industry mainstay: the montage. The concept? Distinct culinary offerings selected, edited and pieced together that allow the diner to “taste the terroir and cultures we have been handed.” And it works — it really works. Situated on busy Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, the eatery’s airy atmosphere transports patrons out of America — or at least out of Los Angeles — with its communal tables, mood-setting candlelight and 90-year-old olive trees stretching up to the second-story loft. It’s the kind of setting that puts you in vacation mode, that easygoing yet excitable frame of mind. And that kind of openness will certainly serve you well here. Wunderkind chef Casey Lane helms the kitchen, serving up Italian-inflected, ingredient-driven fare that changes daily. Opt for one of his tasting menus; come hungry for the three-course or famished for the five-course. Do as the menu suggests and “conserve water; drink wine.” Let the knowledgeable staff help you navigate the impressive if not slightly intimidating vino program, featuring 200-plus varietals. After the bright tartare and the succulent flatiron steak and the luscious bucatini all’amatriciana, you will be tempted to skip dessert. But then you’ll see it: a perfect portion of bread pudding served piping hot in its delightful little ramekin. And you’ll realize you have room for just one more bite. Maybe even two.

PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED BY BATTISTONI | PHOTOGRAPHY BY LONGRADA LOR

Back in 1946, Guglielmo Battistoni opened an eponymous tailor shop hidden in a private courtyard off a busy Rome thoroughfare. Before long, such silver-screen stars as Humphrey Bogart and Marlon Brando were regular clientele; they just couldn’t get enough of the magnificent made-to-measure suits and shirts. But that wasn’t the only draw: Because of its covert locale, Battistoni came to be known for its exclusive atmosphere, akin to that of a gentleman’s club. Over the years, the brand developed a loyal following, with its ready-to-wear styles on offer at select retailers. Now, 70 years later, Battistoni has opened its first U.S. flagship boutique in Beverly Hills. It is conveniently located across from the Beverly Wilshire, just off Rodeo Drive. The impressive 6,500-square-foot space pays homage to its Italian heritage with its stone-laid entrance, marble floors and 17th century ceiling frescoes. Two private rooms let VIP clients shop in peace — or just relax. “Our store in Rome is part retail and part home,” explains brand president Gianni Battistoni. “People came in the past just to read their morning newspapers. Humphrey Bogart would come to drink whiskey. For this store, we created two houses inside for just that.”

Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows, 101 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica 310-576-7777 // fairmont.com/santa-monica

For more than a century, Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows has combined privacy and pampering from its highly covetable locale at the corner of Ocean and Wilshire. It has long been a quiet refuge for celebrities looking to disappear for a while (case in point: Greta Garbo resided here for four-plus years). And with its unmatched accommodations, excellent amenities and impeccable service, it’s still the best stay in Santa Monica. The hotel features 302 guest rooms and suites, many with spectacular views of the Pacific. But the real draw is the collection of secluded poolside bungalows nestled amongst tropical gardens. The circa-1938 spaces were recently refreshed by celebrated Los Angeles interior designer Michael Berman, who says the bungalows have a sort of “barefoot luxury.” The vibe is beach chic, complete with vintage memorabilia, teak sculptures and private terraces. The five-star experience doesn’t stop there. Fig offers hyper-fresh California fare. Its bar has one of the best happy hours in town and is a prime spot to watch resident fromager Eric Brazel craft delectable cheese plates. The Bungalow is the Fairmont Miramar’s latest iteration of its see-and-be-seen nightlife scene, albeit a low-key one. The indoor/outdoor fitness center overlooks the serene pool area and offers daily barre and yoga classes. And last but certainly not least, the award-winning Exhale Spa ensures ultimate relaxation.

Cantina 1910, 5025 N. Clark St., Chicago 773-506-1910 // cantina-1910.com By day, this bustling cafÊ is a favorite gathering spot. By night, guests arrive from near and far for some of the most innovative contemporary Mexican food in town. Weekend brunch is especially busy, with the kitchen churning out chili-spiced cinnamon rolls, fried chicken with churros, and huevos en cazuela — baked eggs in lava rock salsa. Debuting this summer is the 1,400-square-foot rooftop garden, where the eatery employs a full-time farmer to grow produce, including a fierce lineup of hot peppers. An ambitious 70 percent of all Cantina 1910 ingredients is procured within a 200-mile radius year-round. That means pickling, smoking, vacuum-packing and canning foodstuffs like fermented red cabbage to top fish tacos and making marmalade from leftover citrus to use in a tequila daisy cocktail. The drink program is as innovative as the food menu, including a mescal and mole old-fashioned and a hyper-local selection of craft beer. Local Mexican designers created murals for the exterior and behind the bar, and the tables were made by a neighborhood furniture shop. Come summer, the accordion windows open up to let in a delightful breeze.

This 215-room property is one of the most stunning city offerings in the Waldorf Astoria portfolio. Designed by architect Lucien Lagrange, the 60-story tower features a private courtyard and feels more like a home than a hotel. That’s no surprise considering there are 30 residential floors above the guest rooms. The modern, austere lobby is balanced by the warm, welcoming reception from the bellhops and your personal concierge. With the push of a button, the cozy fireplace in your suite ignites. The marble bathroom, complete with Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul toiletries, is large enough to do yoga in. And your private terrace offers views of the most prestigious shopping scene in town — think Barneys, Hermès and Prada. Bernard’s Bar up on the second floor is the perfect place to grab a glass of Champagne or a classic Bronx cocktail while plotting the evening ahead. After a night out on the town, revive yourself with complimentary coffee service delivered to your door before heading to the award-winning spa for a detoxifying body treatment or massage. Suites and meeting spaces were just renovated this spring, and updates to the courtyard, restaurants and spa will wrap up later this year.

Kutzky Market almost seems too ambitious to actually work. But by some miracle, it does work — very well, in fact. Inside this eclectic bazaar, you’ll find a stylish vintage market and a tiny but stately library. You’ll find a sunny coffee bar that morphs into a hip cocktail bar come night, plus an enormous beer garden with live music. You’ll find a stunning pop-up dinner space that’s decked out with salvaged treasures (the whole property was expertly pieced together using materials mainly found or made). And at the heart of the marketplace, you’ll find Forager Brewery — a must for anyone visiting Rochester. This craft brewery and farm-to-table pizzeria shows off the bounty of the region. Executive chef Jordan Bell draws on the diversity of the city for inspiration, which is reflected in Forager’s inventive menu featuring wood-fired pizzas alongside such dishes as pork ramen and Tunisian-style lamb sausage. The brewers experiment as wholeheartedly as the kitchen crew does, with everything from seasonal sours to hybrid lagers. The best way to try them? One of Forager’s flights pairing small bites with beer samplings.

Some of the wares have local ties, like Baleen jewelry (designed by a Madison native who now resides in Seattle), while others are sourced from artists around the country. Drunk Lunch is a family affair; it’s owned by two couples (the Slacks and the Taylors) with admirable ambitions for their business. These entrepreneurs hope their space becomes a gathering place for Madison’s creative community. To that end, they’ve fashioned a collaborative workspace where visitors can drop in and soak up the productive energy. On top of that, Drunk Lunch hosts all sorts of interesting community events, from art openings to book-club meetings to pop-up dinners with the much-lauded food truck El Grito Taqueria.

Ziggurat-style craftsmanship and contemporary elegance combine at the Hotel Ivy, a Starwood Luxury Collection property nestled in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. The edifice’s historic tower was completed in 1930, serving as a church and an administration building before ultimately becoming the luxury inn it is today. While the terraced, pyramid-style tower remains, the hotel also includes a modern skyscraper wrapping the original structure. The 136 guest rooms (including 21 suites) and the lobby recently underwent an $8-million renovation. Featuring modern amenities, the rooms are beautifully appointed in a palette of blue and gray. The two-story, 1,900-square-foot penthouse suite at the top of the historic tower is an entertainer’s dream, with an expansive main floor with multiple sitting areas, an entertainment system and a full bar. The penthouse’s second floor offers another lounge area leading to a patio, the perfect perch to take in the city. The elegant eatery Monello aims to bring the rich culinary traditions of Italy’s Campania region to the Twin Cities. The space feels open and airy, with a white marble bar and contemporary accents. The sea bass with caviar and crème fraîche is downright drool-worthy, as are the sautéed branzino and the torchio pasta with braised rabbit. After dinner, continue the party downstairs at Constantine, the subterranean bar where you can expect an extensive cocktail list, skilled barkeeps and an energetic crowd.

Purple Reign P R I N C E W A S M I N N E S O TA R O YA LT Y . |

BY ANDREA SWENSSON

O

n April 21, 2016, the world gasped as the news whipped its way around the globe: The man born Prince Rogers Nelson and known simply as Prince had been found dead at his Chanhassen home. He was only 57 years old. It was hard to believe someone like Prince, a man who had been singing about the afterlife since the late 1970s, could actually die. It felt like we had been cheated. How could such a supernatural performer and superhuman artist end up being a mere mortal? Prince wasn’t supposed to die; he was supposed to keep making music into his old age then dissipate into the ether like a cherry bomb, pluming into a cloud of purple contrails and smoke, and wafting his way up toward the heavens. When he was alive, we here in Minnesota couldn’t get enough of him — where he was headed, what he was tweeting about, what he was doing out at his Paisley Park studio. We couldn’t help but fixate on our biggest celebrity export, especially because he continued to keep his roots firmly planted in the North. Now that he is gone, the love for Prince is everywhere. His hometown of Minneapolis literally glowed purple, its citizens flooding into the streets around the venue he made famous, First Avenue, to dance, cry and shake the city’s foundation with his music. An unending stream of fans and neighbors made the pilgrimage to Paisley Park to plaster the gates with purple flowers, balloons, guitars, teddy bears, hand-knit purple raindrops and scrawled love letters — everyone paying tribute in their own way. We may never fully understand who Prince Rogers Nelson was or what this loss means, but we do know his legacy. A lifelong musician, he got his start performing music in junior high and never stopped, releasing an endless torrent of albums and topping the Billboard charts at several points in his career. He performed on every stage imaginable, from American Bandstand to the Grammys to the Super Bowl halftime show. He turned the industry on its ear with his views on copyright law and his insistence on maintaining ownership of his art. He subverted all our preconceived notions about race, sex, gender and genre. He kept us on our toes, and his aloofness and unpredictability only further stoked the intrigue. And above all, we know that he was an uncompromising artist. He was a tender, shy man and a larger-than-life enigma. He was, quite simply, Prince.

ONE NIGHT AT PAISLEY PARK Andrea Swensson recounts her encounters at Prince’s compound. |

ILLUSTRATIONS BY ALLEGRA LOCKSTADT

riving through downtown Chanhassen, the last thing you see before you turn the corner and glimpse Paisley Park is the cross and steeple of the neighborhood church. Which seems appropriate, given how many Prince devotees from around the world have flocked to the music icon’s recording studio and party pad. Although the devout Jehovah’s Witness would have cringed at the thought, he had reached an untouchable God-like status in so many of his fans’ minds. Prior to his death and especially now, Paisley Park is Mecca. Most trips out to Paisley Park began the same way. A smoke signal would appear above the Purple One’s compound — in recent years, that would come in the form of a cryptic tweet, but back in the nineties, it might’ve been as subtle as a fan noticing that the lights on the building’s white brick exterior had turned to his signature violet hue — and the mayhem would begin to unfold. Devotees would race out to the Twin Cities suburb, lining up at the property’s gates in their finest heels, sports coats and teased hairdos. And before

the doors could even open, the entire block would be vibrating with the anticipatory feeling that anything might happen that night. Seriously, anything. Like the time Madonna dropped by after her show at the local arena and 30-odd fans watched in awe as the two superstars exchanged knowing glances while Prince serenaded her. Or when he crashed the stage during an Alabama Shakes performance, ripped one perfect guitar solo and disappeared. Or when he brought Kendrick Lamar all the way to Minnesota to perform one blissful song. Of course, not every trek to Paisley Park was a historic event. More often than not, fans were allowed inside to dance for a couple hours to a blaring mix of Prince jams, seventies funk singles and eighties pop hits before getting booted back into the Chanhassen night. No alcohol was served and cell phones were prohibited, so the experience could feel a bit like a junior-high lock-in, everyone shuffling their feet and craning their necks to see if Prince might make an appearance. But the anticipation that something incredible might happen, that incredible things have

happened, that they might just happen again — well that anticipation was intoxicating enough to keep even the most fatigued person bouncing until 2 a.m. I’ve visited Paisley Park enough times now that if I think about it long enough, it all blurs into one long dream: turning off my cell phone. Walking through the gate and up to the stark white building — blocky and oblique, like something out of Beetlejuice. Catching the first glimpse of the motorcycle from Purple Rain that leans on its kickstand in the lobby and catches my breath every single time. Standing in awe of the larger-than-life, purple plush furniture and the giant screens that are always showing random movies like Finding Nemo or the one where James Franco visits Oz and wondering when the great and powerful Wizard of Minneapolis would make his debut. Of all my experiences over the past decade, though, one night stands out above the rest.

116 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North

It was the 30th anniversary of the release of the Purple Rain soundtrack. It would become Prince’s best-selling album — and, as it turns out, the highest selling record to ever come out of Minnesota — and I had just published an interview with the drummer of the Revolution, Bobby Z, who played on the album and was at the music icon’s side for much of his early career. That evening, I received my summons: “P wants to know if you want to come out to a private celebration tonight.” Five hours later, I was inside Paisley Park, chatting nervously with Bobby Z and a handful of insiders, and then there he was: P. After spending so many nights in that building standing on the sidelines and watching from the crowd while he performed, it was disorienting to have Prince stride across the room, walk right up to me and stick out his hand. I stammered out some kind of greeting while he opened his eyes wide and, I kid you not, stared directly into my soul.


Over the next two hours, I did my best to keep up the conversation while Prince flitted around me like a hummingbird, played me his latest music and told an unending string of jokes. He is funny, I realized, laughing from my gut as he spoke in silly voices, gave everyone around him a hard time and shot witty one-liners back at me whenever I asked him rote questions. We talked about the music he liked, the radio hits from his childhood, the documentaries he’d been watching. We talked about how he wanted to be a saxophone player when he was a kid but how he took to the piano a little easier. We talked about how his words ended up twisted around in most interviews and how he’d rather just have a conversation with someone than try to give them a sound bite. All the while, I couldn’t help but marvel at how tender and sweet and charming Prince was, how oddly normal it felt to be standing there with him amidst the purple velvet chairs, trading

barbs and shooting the breeze. So much has been made about his mystique, but on this night, chatting one-on-one with him, it seemed so obvious that he was just a shy, intensely creative guy who enjoys his space and his privacy. Before I could attempt to psychoanalyze him too much, though, Prince snapped me out of my reverie. “Do you want to dance?” he asked, smiling and reaching out his hand. Before I could respond, he snatched it back and laughed. “Just kidding.” After a pause, he did it again. “No really, do you want to dance? Just kidding!” he said, dramatically whipping his hand away and turning on his heel. I looked down at my feet and felt my cheeks turn bright red, shaking my head at the innocent playfulness of it all. I opened my mouth, but nothing came out. And when I looked back up, he was gone.

FIGHT CLUB Inside Prince’s most famous feuds. |

120 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North

BY AN ARTFUL LIVING CONTRIBUTOR


Adversary No. 1 Michael Jackson In the eighties and early nineties, Prince steamrolled the music scene like a stack-heeled tank. The only one who could touch his orbit was Michael Jackson. In a way, they were destined to be rivals: two black kids born to musical fathers in the Midwest in the summer of 1958. Two painfully shy artists known to go without sleep for days in pursuit of their art. Two musicians who found truth with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Michael Jackson even named both his sons Prince: Prince Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. and Prince Michael Joseph Jackson II, nicknamed Blanket. Their universes aligned so much that a collaboration seemed inevitable. Michael Jackson wrote “Bad” with the intention of singing it as a duet with Prince. The Purple One traveled to Neverland Ranch in 1984, but apparently it was a sour mix of personalities from the start. According to a 1997 VH1 interview with Chris Rock, Prince listened to the first line of the song — “Your butt is mine” — and immediately balked. “Who’s singing that to whom?” he asked Jackson. “Cause you sure ain’t singing that to me.” According to a sound engineer present that day, Prince was alone with Jackson all of two hours then left. No one’s sure exactly what transpired, but it’s clear Prince did or said something that deeply offended the Gloved One. According

to record producer L.A. Reid in his recently released memoir Sing to Me, he left such a bad taste in Jackson’s mouth that the King of Pop got his jollies watching an old video of Prince dancing, posing and preening on stage at a 1983 James Brown concert at the Beverly Theater in Los Angeles. Jackson found the performance so terrible he would double over with laughter every time he watched it. Inevitably, writes Reid, Jackson would then screen another one of Prince’s catastrophes, the 1986 art film Under the Cherry Moon. As for Prince, he took the feud public in 1992 with “My Name is Prince,” an audacious hip-hop ballad that snapped at his surgically altered rival: “I don’t wanna be king / cuz I’ve seen the top / and it’s just a dream. / Big cars and women and fancy clothes / will save your face but it won’t save your soul.” In a clear parody of the rapping on Jackson’s “Black or White,” Prince brought in rapper Tony M to throw the final dis: “U must become a prince / before u’re king anyway.” The bad feelings stretched right into Michael Jackson’s final days. At the time of his death in 2009, he was planning a 50-concert stretch as a response to Prince’s 21 Nights engagement in 2007, when the Purple Wonder sold out London’s O2 arena for 21 days in a row, grossing $22 million. Obviously, that never happened.

IN A WAY, THEY WERE DESTINED TO BE RIVALS. Winner: Tossup.

Add another similarity to that list: both icons taken before their time. Perhaps that star-crossed collaboration simply wasn’t destined to be earthbound.

Adversary No. 2 His Own Libido

“ It doesn ’ t matter what sexuality, gender you are. You ’ re in the room with him and he gives you that look and you ’ re like, OK, I ’ m done. ”

Winner: His libido.

122 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North

Prince is the godfather of raunchy music. As journalist Craig Semon wrote in 1992, “Prince was bumping and grinding before Madonna knew which end of an Evian bottle to drink from.” In the 1980s, his level of kink was unrivaled, with tracks about so-wrong-it’s-right incest (“Sister”), rape (“Lust U Always”), 23-position tantric sex (“Gett Off”) and the like. At one point, he had the impressive distinction of having both the No. 1 and No. 2 songs on Tipper Gore’s Parents Music Resource Center’s Filthy 15: “Darling Nikki” and “Sugar Walls.” Hetero guys must have been perfectly befuddled when women screamed in wild ecstasy for the five-foot, two-inch diva with a 27-inch waist and a wardrobe consisting of nothing more than a trench coat, a thong and leg warmers. In an interview with Out magazine in 2009, former Prince collaborators Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman theorized that his sex appeal was really about women being able to express homoerotic feelings without taking on the baggage of being gay. “He’s a girl, for sure, but he’s not gay. … I remember being at that “Sexuality” video shoot and him on stage with that little black jacket and that tie thing around his neck and his black pants with white buttons on the side. And [Lisa and I] looked at each other for the first time, and I thought, ‘Oh, I could so fall in love with that girl easy.’ It doesn’t matter what sexuality, gender you are. You’re in the room with him and he gives you that look and you’re like, OK, I’m done. It’s over. He’s Casanova. He’s Valentino.” Then, in 2001, Prince found religion and shifted from raunchy rocker to preachy bore. Right after his conversion, he banned all cursing from Paisley Park. That same year, he performed at the Xcel Energy Center and stopped the show mid-set to publicly scold a woman in the front row for wearing a dress he deemed too short. In 2007, the glammed-up gospelite offered to pay the lap dancers at a Hollywood nightclub double their night’s wages if they packed it up and went home. In 2009, he released “Ol‘ Skool Company” that longed for an “old-school melody when God, his son and the love of family ruled in the community.” And in interviews, he claimed he finally felt unshackled from the demands of his overactive libido: “I’m single, celibate and sexy,” he told USA Today reporter Edna Gundersen in 2008.

As Los Angeles Times reporter Chris Willman once wrote: “[Prince] is just another confused Peter Pan with Playboy on the brain and a Bible in the hotel drawer.”


"among Prince's panoply of talents lies a nonpareil ability to screw with journalists."

Adversary No. 3 The Media Prince has never been a fan of the Fourth Estate. It’s been more than 30 years since he yelled out “Take a bath, hippies!” on “All The Critics Love U In New York,” and he only grew more anti-media as the years wore on. By 1990, Prince had issued a universal decree against note taking and tape recorders in his Purple Presence. He preferred, as Guardian columnist Joachim Hentschel put it, that writers simply “soak up the vibes.” Of course, journalists technically weren’t allowed to share any of said vibes because they were reportedly required to sign a four-page confidentiality agreement prohibiting them from writing about anything outside the narrowly defined purview of the interview. Not only did he try to make the job as hard as possible, he was also into unabashed humiliation. In 1990, Prince made a gaggle of journalists dance for him, and only those hacks whose moves he deemed sufficiently funky got to ask questions. Last November, he summoned four European music critics to Paisley Park and had them literally sit at his feet while he fielded questions from behind a grand piano. Whenever the journalists asked him a question he didn’t like, he struck up the theme from The Twilight Zone and wordlessly shook his head. It really wasn’t anything reporters didn’t expect. English music writer Alexis Petridis was there and summed it up like so: “I’m a journalist and thus aware that among Prince’s panoply of talents lies a nonpareil ability to screw with journalists.” He certainly got his chuckles last August when he summoned New York Post reporter Hardeep Phull to Paisley Park on short notice then insisted on being interviewed over the phone — from Paisley Park. Novelist and hardcore fan

Winner: Prince.

Matt Thorne spent months trying to secure an interview with His Highness. Finally, he was invited to a gig in New York. Midway through a guitar solo, Prince spotted the writer in the audience, walked over and whispered: “How ’bout that interview?” When Thorne turned around, the musician ran off. The novelist never heard from him again. We knew what was coming, and yet we reporters just kept banging our heads against the wall. Mark Lepage, an industrious reporter for the Montreal Gazette, spent the better part of two weeks in 2001 trying to land an interview via various Prince underlings, essentially offering free publicity prior to his show at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. After a half-dozen contradictory messages, it became clear to Lepage that an in-person interview was never going to happen. He was finally able to email a few questions to Prince, by way of his handlers, hoping that the elfin enigma would deem him worthy of a response. Eventually, Lepage was told Prince “[would] not answer these questions.” After pushing a little harder, he was then told Prince wouldn’t answer “this woman’s questions.” When he tried again to get a response — noting he was in fact a man, not a woman — Prince insisted he actually only wanted to be interviewed by a woman. Journalists tried various tactics to skirt the Evasive One. Clever Twin Cities writer Neal Karlen, for example, faked a bladder infection so he could race to the bathroom every half hour to write notes on toilet paper. Star Tribune columnist C.J. long called Prince “Symbolina,” a nickname that practically seethes with revulsion. We media types have had our moments of quiet rebellion, but really, who are we kidding? This is a slam dunk for the Purple One.

Resist though we tried, we simply couldn’t stay away.

HOME SWEET HOME Some of the Purple One’s unusual abodes. | BY ANNE RODERIQUE-JONES | ILLUSTRATIONS BY MANDY EBERT

MINNEAPOLIS, THE EARLY YEARS While Prince didn’t actually live in the Purple Rain house, as it’s come to be known, it’s here that a handful of poignant scenes in the 1984 film took place. The Longfellow neighborhood property hit the market in July 2015 listed at $110,000 and despite “needing rehab” sold for $117,000 — with more than 12,000 views. The new owners are missing a piece of history, though: The bathtub featured in the movie had been sold on eBay a few years prior.

LOS ANGELES, PART ONE In the nineties, Prince purchased an Italianate villa in Beverly Hills. The 7,100-square-foot structure boasted a handsome library and a two-level wine cellar. He later sold the home for $2.2 million.

SOUTHERN SPAIN, 1996 As a wedding gift, Prince bought a palatial pad for first wife Mayte Garcia; it was dubbed the love nest during their time in residence. The 7,000-plus-square-foot, pink-hued home was nestled into the hills of the Paraíso Alto development in southern Spain and offered views of the Mediterranean Sea. After the couple split, Garcia — who reportedly spent weekends at the property — sold the manse to a Dutch businessman in 2004. With the purchase came a professional hair salon, music studio, mirrored ceiling above the master bed, and mural of the twosome walking hand-in-hand into the sunset.

TORONTO, 2001 When Prince married Torontonian Manuela Testolini, he proclaimed his love for the vibrant Canadian city and purchased a property in ultra-posh Bridle Path. The white house with massive columns was nearly 15,000 square feet with 10 bathrooms. The couple filed for divorce in 2006, and the home was later sold. Although the structure was a run-of-the-mill mansion, it’s said there was an all-purple room inside.

LOS ANGELES, PART TWO In 2006, Prince rented a West Hollywood home for $70,000 a month from NBA star Carlos Boozer, who subsequently sued the singer over his unauthorized extreme makeover choices. The basketball player accused him of purpling-up the 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom pad. The lawsuit claimed he violated the property by “painting the exterior of the [house] with purple striping, ‘Prince’ symbol and numbers 3121.” It also stated that purple monogrammed carpet was installed, and plumbing and piping were added in the downstairs bedroom “for water transfer for beauty-salon chairs.” Boozer’s case was ultimately dismissed. In 2008, Prince leased a 30,000-square-foot, Tuscan-style villa in Beverly Park. Rent was rumored to be $200,000 a month.

MINNEAPOLIS, THE END Prince once told Oprah he would always live in Minneapolis because “it’s so cold, it keeps the bad people out.” Throughout his life, he invariably returned to Minnesota, where he maintained several properties, including his childhood home in North Minneapolis. And he was at his beloved Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen until the very end.

Up North Investigating Minnesota’s captivation with the cabin. | BY MARGUERITE HAPPE

I

n the North, cabin culture is deeply ingrained in our identity. On Friday afternoons Memorial Day through Labor Day, a bird’s-eye view of the Twin Cities metro area reveals a mass exodus of minivans and SUVs en route to destinations in lake country, western Wisconsin and the like. The rustic cottages of yore, however, have transformed into lake homes: houses situated in nature with many of the same amenities as primary residences. Many people simply want a space that reflects the idea that pleasure can indeed overcome duty, even if it’s only a temporary respite. Artful Living sat down with Amy Dirkes, AIA, studio leader for Nor-Son’s Custom Homes Northern Minnesota office, to learn more about current lake-home trends.

Do Minnesotans still want cabins? Yes. People are immersed in a fast-paced lifestyle, and they want a departure from reality. Many Minnesotans find that escape at the lake. At Nor-Son, whether we’re building on Lake Minnetonka or Gull Lake, we build about 15 lake homes a year. Each client is looking for different things in their second home, but all have a common theme: a place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. This doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing the creature comforts of home, though, so most of the cabins we build are not really cabins in the traditional sense. They are essentially lake homes, filled with many of the amenities clients have in their primary homes.

What does a cabin connote that a lake home does not? Typically, a true Minnesota cabin connotes a simplified version of a traditional home; however, our lake homes often feature spaces such as recreation rooms, sport courts, exercise facilities, saunas or even wine-tasting rooms. For many of our clients, enjoying a getaway doesn’t mean sacrificing modern comfort or convenience.

190 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North


What are the architectural differences between a cabin and a lake home? I’m not sure there really is a difference. Whether building a cabin or a lake home, the architectural style is typically fairly relaxed. People want it to be warm and welcoming and something that blends in with the surroundings, often inviting the feeling of outdoors inside. To achieve this desired aesthetic, we often use natural materials like wood, timber and stone. Some of these materials may be new and harvested locally, while others are reclaimed from old barns and warehouses, offering a more rustic feel.

ALL HOMES DESIGNED BY NOR-SON ARCHITECT PAUL MAKI, AIA

What do Minnesotans want their cabins to look like? No two clients are the same, but most second homes fall into one of two categories: more refined or more rustic. For a more refined appearance, we’ll focus on cleaner, sharper lines; more traditional millwork profiles; and richer toned materials, such as walnut or cherry. For those who appreciate a rustic aesthetic, we’ll incorporate materials like thick, chunky millwork; hand-hewn timbers; log accents; and reclaimed, rough-sawn paneling made of knotty pine, alder or hickory. Each cabin or lake home is unique, reflecting the personality of its owner.

What trends do you see in the cabins and lake homes you’ve been building lately? Most of our clients come to us with a piece of property that has been in their family for generations. As a result, they are often asking us to create a legacy property to be shared by current and future generations. We’re seeing more and more multiple buildings on the property, like boathouses and guesthouses, as well as families with multiple lots side-by-side for children and grandchildren.

Arts and Craftsmanship David Heide Design Studio celebrates every detail of a beloved historic home. | BY ELIZABETH FOY LARSEN

W

hen Twin Cities architect David Heide was tapped to renovate an Arts and Crafts house on Lake Minnetonka’s Carson’s Bay, he had no idea the project would become that rare opportunity to turn a gem into a masterpiece. Built in 1905 as a summer home for one of the Cargill sons, the two-story house was likely designed by celebrated Prairie School architect Hugh M. G. Garden of Chicago. When the current owner expressed to friends her desire to update the abode while celebrating its architectural roots, they insisted she meet Heide. When the two finally connected at an antiques show, neither knew they’d spend half a decade collaborating on a mutual labor of love. “The joke is that she invited me to furnish the living room, and five years later, we finished the project,” says Heide. That project included a new kitchen that marries modern

conveniences with period-appropriate cabinetry, finishes and glass. A green granite countertop provides the perfect contrast to the cabinetry’s warm tones and the custom white tile backsplashes. An avid entertainer, the homeowner for years has hosted a weekly Sunday supper for 15 friends and wanted the kitchen to accommodate these gatherings, which often involve several cooks. But she also needed the space to be intimate enough to work well when she is on her own. Heide’s solution? Anchor the space with an octagonal serving table on one end and a large island with multiple prep spaces on the other. He also placed the cooktop, refrigerator and sink in one area, creating a convenient work triangle. The owner also wanted to be able to see the lake from the kitchen — not a simple feat considering the room is located at the back of the home. Heide solved that challenge by removing a


few walls and installing insulated folding doors between the living area and the spectacular wraparound porches just outside. The views got another boost when Heide relocated the three-car garage underneath the house. Outside, the home is masterfully landscaped by the owner, a trained landscape architect. She collaborated with colleagues Frank Fitzgerald and Fred Rozumalski to create spaces that showcase a wide variety of flora and also commissioned artisans to build stone walls, which Heide describes as dazzling. It’s this kind of attention to detail that made the project so special for Heide, who also designed carpets and worked with coppersmiths, decorative painters, glassblowers and woodcarvers on the home’s finishing touches. “It’s a privilege to get to do this kind of work with someone who values it so much and has a vision,” says Heide. “For people like me who are interested in the American Arts and Crafts Movement, this project is the pinnacle.”

Elemental Elegance The organic modern trend juxtaposes earthy materials with pops of polish. | BY CAROLYN CROOKE

L

ong regarded as cold by many homeowners, modern design is undergoing a quiet revolution thanks to the organic modern trend, where earthy, elemental materials are infusing cutting-edge interiors with welcome warmth and coziness. One stunning example: this Minnetonka abode built by Hendel Homes, the design-build firm known for its exquisitely crafted residences. “A careful layering of natural materials is a big part of achieving this warm, approachable feel,” explains Amy Hendel. “You can look around here and see wood, metal, stone and glass — all very simple, earthy materials.” Finishes are also key. Though most of the surfaces here are flat, the effect is striking. Take the great room, with its monochromatic stone fireplace topped by crisscrossed beams of reclaimed white oak. The beams are not even stained — just sealed for a natural-looking finish. Here and there are pops of polish, such as the hammered antique bronze sconces on either side of the fireplace. “I like to think of light fixtures as the jewelry in a room like this,” notes Hendel. “They add a bit of elegance to the raw, rustic feel.” In the kitchen, a Bahir chandelier adds sparkle in brilliant contrast to the rich walnut cabinetry and the almost primitive white oak floor and reclaimed seating. The flat panel cabinets are reconstituted walnut, which showcases the flowing richness of the grain. Even the stainless-steel sink and appliances as well as the nickel fixtures and hardware have an elemental sheen. The Hendel team worked closely with SKD Architects and the homeowner on this project. “We love collaborating,” says Hendel. “We’re here to enhance the owner’s style, to exceed what they envision.”

Top Twin Cities landscapers on creating inspiring alfresco spaces. |

BY KATE NELSON

home || insider’s guide

KEENAN & SVEIVEN Easiest way to get inspired:

A surefire way to get inspired for the summer landscaping season is to spend a winter in Minnesota.

Top tip:

Plan ahead. It is never too early to bring your landscape architect into the mix. Our design/build approach is a collaboration with all team members working together toward a common goal.

Common misconception:

That construction doesn’t take very long. A great deal of coordination goes into a landscape project, and that takes time. But when it is done and done well, all that seems to be a distant memory.

A classic that will never go out of style:

The use of authentic materials like brick and stone provides a classic, timeless quality regardless of the design style.

Trend you love:

Setting new trends. We strive to put trends in perspective in order to create landscapes that raise the bar.

Single feature for instant curb appeal: Curb appeal is a feeling, an emotion. All the landscape elements should fit seamlessly and work as a whole. Punch at the front door is a good starting point, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle.

Secret to a great garden:

A great garden needs lots of attention. Consider hiring a professional.

Your company’s trademark:

We all share a can-do attitude. We enjoy building relationships, taking on new challenges and collaborating with our clients to develop artful spaces.

OUTDOOR EXCAPES

Secret to a great garden:

Proper plant location is everything. Considering the sun and water requirements of a plant as well as the hardiness zone is vital to maintaining a healthy garden.

Single feature for instant curb appeal:

Window boxes with some colorful annuals can go a long way.

Common misconception:

That landscaping is just about plants and mulch. Good landscape design considers both the architecture of the home and the natural characteristics of the property to create a seamless transition from the interior to the exterior.

Most memorable project:

PHOTOGRAPHY BY STEVE SILVERMAN AND DAVID HOYT

We created a Zen deck overlooking a nature preserve for a client in Minnetonka so she had a peaceful setting for morning yoga. I designed it so it felt like the deck simply grew out of the landscape; we cut the boards around large boulders and worked the deck around existing trees to give it a very natural feel.

Your company’s trademark:

We take a lot of time working with our clients through the design process. A landscape project can have a huge impact on the look and function of a property, so we want to make sure our clients have all the information and visuals needed to make the right decisions about this investment.

Easiest way to get inspired:

Travel around the city. The metro area is full of public gardens and beautifully designed landscapes that provide plenty of inspiration.

GRAY GARDENS

Your company’s trademark:

At Gray Gardens, we’re passionate about the interplay between homes and gardens, people and nature, and history and culture. Whether we’re designing formal French and Italian landscapes, planting exuberant English flower gardens, building elegant outdoor kitchens and living rooms, or creating luxurious swimming pools and pavilions, we go above and beyond to create extraordinary beauty and immeasurable value for our clients.

Common misconception: That gardens and landscapes are expensive. It’s all about the materials selected and the details for the design that create a lasting outdoor environment.

A classic that will never go out of style: A perennial and annual mixture for gardens and natural stone products.

Most memorable project:

For a couple confirmed Francophiles, we designed a French-inspired outdoor environment to reflect their New Orleans–style home. Taking inspiration from my travels in Paris and Provence, I designed a simple yet sophisticated plan featuring trees, plants, shrubs and flowers that are equally at home in France and in Minneapolis. The Gray Gardens team replaced the old blacktop driveway with intimate courtyard spaces and lined the path to the front door with colorful annuals and Provençal-style urns planted with topiary trees. To create a focal point, we installed a French fountain with a low rim that makes an ideal place to enjoy a glass of Provençal Rosé at dusk.

SOUTHVIEW DESIGN

Top tip:

Hire a professional to do the design and installation of your landscaping or gardening project. Homeowners seldom have the expertise, equipment or manpower to create something that will enhance their home and last a long time.

Your company’s trademark:

We are the award-winning landscaping contractor for people who want to do it once and do it right.

Single feature for instant curb appeal:

For landscaping, trees add a lot to a home. They soften the architecture and bring it down to a human scale. For gardening, annual flowers are the best way to get all-season color.

Trend you love:

Outdoor fire features are really popular. What’s nicer than an outdoor fire? It can be wood or gas, modern or traditional. Fireplaces, fire pits, fire boulders and fire tables are all great.

Trend you’re over: PHOTOGRAPHY BY TROY THIES AND PETER KOWLER

Gazing balls are thankfully a thing of the past!

A classic that will never go out of style:

Hydrangeas are an old-fashioned plant with many varieties today.

Secret to a great garden:

One of the principles we use is the law of significant enclosure. When you feel a sense of privacy, you feel comfortable. Another secret to think about is prospect and refuge. Being in a place of refuge looking out at the landscape is a great place to be.

Go West

Gateway Canyons is a resort like no other. | BY FRANK ROFFERS

U

pon landing at Grand Junction Regional Airport, I’m promptly asked which vehicle I’m most interested in driving during my stay at Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa. It turns out one of the most distinctive offerings at this luxe Colorado property is the Driven Experiences program. Guests are invited to choose from a stable of high-performance luxury vehicles — including a Bentley Continental, Corvette ZR1 and Porsche 911 Carrera — and are given a long leash to drive at will along vast stretches of scenic highways. West of Aspen, north of Telluride and just east of Moab, the resort is remotely located in no man’s land 55 miles from the

nearest traffic light or stop sign. It’s not easy to get to, and that is part of its Wild West allure. The property is the brainchild of John S. Hendricks, the founder and chairman of Discovery Communications and other notable media companies. Initially intended as a personal retreat, it has evolved into a luxury lodging experience with a focus on adventure and education. It’s racked up all kinds of accolades, including being ranked the No. 2 Colorado resort by Condé Nast Traveler. Gateway Canyons features 72 guest rooms and suites, including 14 casitas. The adobe-style buildings are designed to blend with the landscape, and it seems every room has views of the

adventure || getaway

surrounding red-rock canyons. Casita guests enjoy butler service along with such perks as priority reservations, complimentary in-room wet bar and round-trip airport transportation. The food is top-shelf, and the theme is Colorado cuisine. Executive Chef Stephen Belie infuses fresh seafood, regional meats and locally sourced produce with a Cuban flair. The resort’s three dining venues offer guests a variety of ambiances and menus. There are no golf courses, tennis facilities or other trappings of an upscale resort. Instead, Gateway Canyons offers curated individual activities, from guided horseback riding to stargazing instruction to off-road utility task vehicle tours. Other amenities include a world-class spa, an auto museum with more than 50 impeccably preserved classic cars, and an adventure center providing access to archery, fly-fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, skeet shooting and the like. One of the most thrilling experiences is a tour in a $2-million Eurocopter AS350 B3, affording incredible views of red-rock canyons and snowcapped peaks. A visit to Gateway Canyons gets travelers off the beaten vacation path and awakens their spirit of adventure. John S. Hendricks has succeeded in creating a resort like no other.

Uncharted Territory Hidden deep within the Grand Canyon is a natural paradise. | BY PHOEBE EATON

E

veryone is talking about the double rainbow that suddenly appeared over Hualapai Hilltop as the sun set over the Spaghetti Western horizon. In Native American lore, a rainbow is a bridge from one world to another. And that’s precisely the kind of journey we’re in for, those of us who have pulled into the parking lot for the night at the edge of this thousand-foot-high cliff, the terminus of Indian Road 18 on Arizona’s Havasupai Indian Reservation. Hidden at the bottom of this hot, winding gorge, in a place gold-greedy Spanish conquistadors just couldn’t be bothered with, is the unlikeliest of unlikelies: Cataract Canyon. The Grand Canyon’s swimming hole. A ribbon of dramatic waterfalls unspooling one after the other amid Jurassic scenery that flies in the face of all reason. The Havasupai (translation: people of the blue-green water) are the only continuously residing Native Americans in the Grand Canyon. Today, they are the sole proprietors of a secret Shangri-la reachable only by hike, horse or helicopter. People speak of making as many as 900 calls to the persnickety tribal office to nail a campsite here when the checkered flag falls February 1 at 8 a.m. Mountain time. These are generally the die-hards who start down the switchbacks before dawn with headlamps and heavy packs. Youth groups and scout troops.

Adventure junkies who spend a night in the back of a Camry so they can make tracks in the dawn’s early chill. Then there are those who pay operators $1,000 just to handle it. To secure the elusive permits. To convoy the tents, meals and air mattresses (and sometimes even the clients themselves) to the bottom and back by mule train or helicopter. It seems like overkill until I realize the same hiking boots that did a yeoman-like job getting me to Everest base camp are leaving blisters on my toes after just an hour on those switchbacks. Combined with the ache of my under-appreciated muscles, this has me reconsidering that $170 chopper flight in and out. The Havasupai have been living here since before Columbus, and people of one tribe or another had been living here since before Jesus. They believe the entire human race was born in the Grand Canyon after the god of good fashioned a canoe to save his daughter from a great flood started by the god of evil. She then found herself pregnant first by the sun and second by a waterfall in the sacred canyon. I step off Switchback Hill into a flat gravel gulch where once a mighty river roared. Two hours to go, two liters of water left. There is nobody else in my sightline, which is how it’s going to be for much of this trip. And only when you experience that do you appreciate how rare it is these days.

Finally: the sign announcing “You’re almost there!!” with a smiley face that everyone complains is still half an hour from Supai. As if on cue, up pulls a mule train led by the town’s foremost smiley face: chatty, cowboy-hatted packer and night ranger David Bartholomew. Hikers who trade tips online say he’s the one friendly person in the village. He came as a tourist years ago and married a local woman. The natives still call him Mexican Dave to distinguish him from another non-member of the tribe known as White Dave. At the base of fraternal-twin red-rock spires its people call the Watchers, the town of Supai is all tidy horse corrals and little houses. Each property has a horse, the family vehicle, grazing on its front lawn; though a handful of Polaris ATVs tool around town, delivered by chopper sling load. Most everything else arrives via U.S. mail, including my camping equipment.

230 Artful Living

| Magazine of the North

Supai is the only place in the country where mail still comes by mule train and goes out with a mule-train postmark. Apart from trail maintenance and some chutes and ladders installed hither and yon to aid in the conquest of the falls, the tribe’s efforts playing nanny are minimal. At an informal depot behind a group evacuation point, a tribesman named Edmond lends out inner tubes and water shoes previously abandoned by feckless visitors. A sign at Havasu Falls just outside the campgrounds explains that the water gets its hue from a high concentration of calcium carbonate, which is somehow not conducive to fish. Children are doing backflips off Havasu’s tiered rims into the boil. The falls are framed with dramatic travertine aprons, like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The campground’s other bookend is Mooney Falls,


with a height exceeding that of Niagara. The descent via a complicated system of chains and caves is not for the faint of heart. In fact, the falls are named for a miner who attempted the same and was dashed to bits below. Mooney is the barrier to entry to Beaver Falls three miles downstream, where fewer than 10 percent of visitors wind up — though it’s the most prehistoric walk of all, one that requires fording the creek a few times. The trail fades in and out, but there are landmarks: the enchanting fairy grotto with maidenhair ferns hung like wisteria. The valley of the vines, where the wild grapes haven’t yet ripened. The stairwell with barrel cacti shaped like Sissy Hankshaw’s hitchhiking thumb. The lone palm tree not native to the area signals the approach to Beaver, where a tiered spill has fooled some into turning around before they experience

the very bottom, where one can soak all day in the oyster lips of several pools. The water generally comes up to the knees, but there are deeper points, too — and if you know where to find them, two secret green rooms and a blue room up under the falls. It’s another four miles from Beaver to the Colorado River. Near what’s called Beaver Canyon is a place to spot bighorn sheep. They are said to make a rare appearance on the canyon floor when ancestors want to communicate an important message. Legend has it sheep wandered into Supai village just before the attacks on September 11, 2001. But I don’t need a bighorn to tell me I’m out of time and will not be seeing the banks of the Colorado. Zipped into my tent by early evening, I’m ready to break camp at 5 the next morning, heading back on the outbound lane of the rainbow.

Animal Attraction PHOTOGRAPHY BY BY ERIK R. TRINIDAD

Trekking the Colorado Rockies with a woolly companion. | BY ERIK R. TRINIDAD

This is Jack,” said my trek leader, introducing me to my escort at the Tennessee Pass Trailhead of the Continental Divide Trail. “He’s an awesome llama, but he can be a little stubborn.” Jack was one of four llamas that accompanied me and an intrepid group, led by Paragon Guides’ Will Elliott and Nick Vincent, on a hike through the White River National Forest near Vail, Colorado. How Jack’s temperament would influence the experience was yet to be seen as our group meticulously distributed the weight of our cargo over the

woolen quartet. In the meantime, I was just happy he wasn’t spitting at me. Llamas are typically associated with their native mountain range, the Andes of South America, but theses cousins of camels are raised in other areas of the world as well. Born at the Buckhorn Llama Co. in Masonville, Colorado, Jack — along with his counterparts Bailey, Durango and Oreo — was brought up to realize his potential as a pack animal, naturally adapted for high altitudes with minimal environmental impact.

adventure || trek

Llamas aren’t strong enough to carry a load until they are at least 7 years old, but when ready, they can pack as much as 30 percent of their body weight in cargo — in our case, personal effects and provisions, including steaks, cheeses and above all, our all-important bottles of post-hike wine. Our ultimate destination was the summit of Homestake Peak, one of the Sawatch mountain range’s notables at 13,209 feet. Jack and company would take us to our base shelter at 11,300 feet, a 10th Mountain Division Hut. Built in 1989 in honor of the U.S. Army’s specialized mountain infantry, the structure is no barracks. The cozy cabin comes complete with an iron stove–equipped kitchen, two private bedrooms and enough space to accommodate 16 people. Normally hikers can reserve a spot there, but Paragon Guides booked out the entire house so we could spread out and enjoy some Rocky Mountain hospitality. We just had to get there. “C’mon, Jack!” I said to my woolly escort, leading him along the trail with a leash like a large, long-necked dog. More accurately, it was him leading me — he’d done this before — as we kept pace with the rest of the group. On occasion, he’d duck down to nibble on some vegetation, and the momentary pause provided an opportunity to partake in what became a recurring phenomenon of the trek: the llama selfie. This was difficult, however, as Jack proved camera-shy. I tried petting his head and neck, the way I would a dog. He was less than cooperative, always snapping his head back or looking away. Meanwhile, the others were already hashtagging #llamaselfie. We continued along the gradually ascending trail, engulfed by the canopy of conifers. I might have relished in the clean, mountain air and taken in the bubbly murmurs of nearby creeks, but my bonding with Mother Nature was interrupted by the literal breathing down my neck. I flinched in dismay at Jack’s snorts, as he often surprised me when scratching his nose on my daypack. Our odd-couple relationship went on hiatus during our group breaks. At Lily Lake, the llamas stood guard, almost regally, while we stopped to snack on protein bars and trail mix. I don’t know what happened during that moment on the lakeshore — perhaps it was the simple serenity of it all — but afterward, Jack started to lighten up. Perhaps he’d grown too tired to be resistant to selfies. Or perhaps he was actually warming up to me. A passing rain cloud greeted us after a picnic lunch, and I delighted in the peaceful sprinkle. I don’t know if it was my rain-infused reverie or Jack’s propensity to pause for a snack, but somehow we got separated from the group. The pace of the caravan had naturally spread out with each llama’s individual stride, and we were far behind. The trees and shrubbery of the forest kept the rest of the group out of my peripheral vision, and the trail wasn’t clearly defined. We were lost.

“Hellloooo?!” I called out. Jack grunted in disappointment. “We’ll find them, Jack,” I assured my camelid companion. He began humming out a noise, similar to a whale call, as if trying to hail his wooly brethren. No response. Bonded by our state of misplacement, we trekked on, hoping to be found. Eventually we encountered a lone camper pitching a tent. “Uh, have you seen any llamas?” I asked. She smiled. “Yeah,” she answered, pointing. “They went that way.” We finally caught a glimpse of the group in an open meadow of wildflowers. By the time we caught up with them, our destination was in sight. I was relieved when at last we arrived at the cabin, not only because the sun had come out or because Nick and Will were already baking brie to go with the charcuterie and

wine. I was happy to get Jack offloaded and properly fed. I led him to a stream for a drink. Nearby was a patch of long grass. “Let’s get you some of that good stuff,” I told him, petting him on the neck. This time, he didn’t flinch. The next morning, we bipeds donned our daypacks and headed up to the summit of Homestake Peak and back down before being reunited with our llama counterparts. I was no longer a stranger to Jack, but an old acquaintance, and there was much more cooperation between the two of us on our descent down the mountain. “It’s a lot easier than walking a dog,” Will said to me, seeing that I’d finally gotten the hang of it. Now I like dogs as much as the next guy, but take it from me: If you’re trekking the Colorado Rockies with a formidable amount of provisions, you’re definitely going to want to bring a llama. Out there, whether it’ll pose for a selfie or not, a llama is man’s best friend.

T

o see the swimming of the wild ponies of Chincoteague is to witness a thing of wonder. Equal parts Americana, majesty and mythology, the annual tradition celebrates its 91st run this summer. Just off the coast of Virginia lies the island of Chincoteague, home to some 3,000 residents. Come July, that population swells as tens of thousands of visitors from across the world book out the isle’s twenty-odd inns and mom-and-pop B&Bs. The town’s seafood shacks and ice-cream parlors become overrun with equine aficionados of all ages. The excitement builds and builds until the otherwise sleepy seaside hamlet is abuzz. And everyone knows a local holiday is upon them: It’s officially Pony Penning Week. Just off the coast of Chincoteague lies the even smaller isle of Assateague, home to some 150 wild ponies. Just how they got there remains a mystery, though many believe they descended from survivors of a Spanish shipwreck back in the 1500s. Over the centuries, the hardy breed has adapted to its environment, feeding on cordgrass, beach grass, seaweed and twigs. Today, the ponies are owned, in the loosest of terms, by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company. A subset of the department known as the Saltwater Cowboys manages the herd size as mandated by the U.S. National Park Service, which oversees the wildlife refuge that makes up much of Assateague Island. The swimming of the ponies and the subsequent auctioning of some of the foals began quite practically as a means to limit the population. This tradition was

immortalized in Misty of Chincoteague, Marguerite Henry’s 1947 children’s classic, and lives on today. To Chincoteague residents — Teaguers, as they call themselves — the Saltwater Cowboys are local heroes. The weeklong pony-penning extravaganza serves as a major fundraiser for the fire company, and each night, residents and tourists flood the small-town fairgrounds to take a spin on the Tilt-A-Whirl, enjoy the live music and munch on oyster fritters at the firemen’s carnival. The weekend prior to the swim, the Saltwater Cowboys round up the ponies, which can prove difficult; they recount tales of tracking one or two elusive individuals who take them on a wild-horse chase. Monday at daybreak, the equines occupying the northern part of the island are herded along the shore of the Atlantic Ocean and eventually make their way into corrals closer to the designated swim zone. Hundreds of spectators gather on the beachfront to take in the wondrous sight. It’s a reunion of sorts for locals, who can distinguish each of the stallions and mares by their distinct coloring and markings. The ponies are then vetted, quite literally, to determine fitness for the physical endeavor that follows. The main event takes place Wednesday, though the exact time is never set. For that, the Saltwater Cowboys rely on the U.S. Coast Guard to determine slack tide, a short, nonspecific window when the water is still. At that precise moment, a single flare fires off. The tens of thousands of spectators who have been waiting for hours — some of whom have waded into the marsh, some

of whom have shelled out the big bucks for a front-row view aboard a chartered boat — erupt in cheers. And the cowboys drive the ponies into the water for their 75-yard swim, which takes some three minutes when conditions are good. Once across the channel, the ponies rest for a short time while being ogled by the masses before being paraded through town to the fairgrounds. Come Thursday, select foals, typically four to six months old, are auctioned off to qualified bidders. The Saltwater Cowboys present each of the sale ponies, none of whom are halter-broke, for the consideration of the crowd. Most require the manpower of two to three people, but some, like the rare yearling that hits the auction block, need even more hands on deck. For many, owning a Chincoteague pony is a dream. For a select few — like the recipients of Feather Fund awards, which help children purchase these equines — it becomes a reality. The big draw tends to be the buybacks, those ponies deemed necessary for replenishing the herd who will live out their days on the island. Last year’s record-breaking bid of $25,000 went for one such filly, the daughter of a beloved late stallion. In total, the 2015 auction raised nearly $170,000 to support the fire company. The rest of the herd swims back to Assateague on Friday, again at slack tide. And just like that, the magic is over. The tourists pack up and check out. Chincoteague’s Main Street becomes quiet once more. And the wild ponies reign over their isle until next year, when the crowds return to watch them make their incredible annual pilgrimage.

Enchanted Forest Mary Griggs Burke led a fairy-tale life at her family’s historic northwoods estate. | BY DAVID MAHONEY

W

hen Mary Griggs Burke died near the end of 2012, the bequest of her vast collection of Japanese art to the Minneapolis Institute of Art and New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art sparked considerable excitement. Less well-publicized was her gift of Forest Lodge, an 872-acre estate on the shores of Lake Namakagon in northern Wisconsin, to the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Although Burke actually arranged the transfer several years earlier, she had retained a life estate to her family’s compound at the heart of the property. This summer, after painstaking restoration, the historic lakeshore retreat finds new life as an environmental and cultural center, with Northland College offering programs for high schoolers and adults. It will also serve as a research station and conference facility for the institution’s new Mary Griggs Burke Center for Freshwater Innovation,

At last, through the thick foliage, I caught sight of two sturdy stone gate posts, and, with a cry of delight, I realized we were there. Beyond the gate posts ran a very narrow road, almost a path. The branches of the trees brushed the roof of the car. Only spots of sunlight penetrated through the trees; all was dim, and the air smelt of the damp woodland, smelt of rotting wood and cool swampy places covered with moss and inhabited by frogs and polliwogs. This thick growth lasted for only a few turns, and then suddenly a meadow burst into sight, and, beyond the meadow, clear blue sparkling water — the lake.

established last year with an endowment from the Burke estate’s foundation. “This is going to be one of the places where human beings come to terms with how they’re going to live together on the face of the earth,” says Jason Maloney, who has managed the ongoing restoration for the U.S. Forest Service. Occupying the site of a former logging camp, Forest Lodge started humbly as a two-room log cabin on a 100-acre parcel that Burke’s grandfather, Crawford Livingston, bought from the North Wisconsin Lumber Company in 1902. The successful St. Paul businessman, who made his fortune in railroads and other ventures, rebuilt and expanded the structure before giving it to his daughter, Mary, in 1916 following her marriage to Theodore W. Griggs, the scion of another prominent St. Paul family. That same year, the Griggs’ own daughter, also named Mary, was born prematurely. As a young girl, she was carried up and down the stairs of the family’s imposing Italianate villa on Summit Avenue per her mother’s request. An only child who was tutored at home by her mother’s secretary until finally enrolling at the Summit School for third grade, she spent a lot of time alone. But what Mary lacked in companionship she made up for with imagination. And Forest Lodge, which she “loved more than any other place on earth,” she would later write, proved to be fertile ground for her flights of fancy. “The forest offered the most wonderful places to play that any child could possibly imagine,” Burke wrote. “The games which could be invented were unending. Old rotting logs, lying end to end as they had been left from the lumber camp, might be anything from a train of railway cars to the rooms of an enormous fairy palace. One tree, burned by a forest fire so that it resembled the grim gray walls of a medieval tower, was a particularly good setting for a fairy princess shut up by a cruel giant, or even for the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet. Another tree, still standing but hollow inside, was known to me as the secret tower, for when I was hidden inside, my nurse could never find me, and when I leaped out at her with an awful roar, she was always tremendously frightened.” One summer, Burke’s mother invited Girl Scouts from the nearby town of Cable to Forest Lodge to take part in an outdoor staging of Hansel and Gretel. She created sets for the production and filmed it with her movie camera. “I was the old witch,” she later recounted. Burke’s father, who helped run his family’s food processing and distribution business, would join the family at Forest Lodge on weekends when he could, traveling by train to Cable, where a caretaker would pick him up in a Model T Ford. Burke relished the precious time her father spent with her, clearing trails through the woods, and later with school friends she brought to the cabin. “My father was wonderful with them,” she noted.

Water Works

Creating a Camp David for the environment. Last year, Northland College announced it had received a $10-million endowment from Mary Griggs Burke’s family foundation to create a freshwater center that would have two homes: the college’s campus near Lake Superior in Ashland, Wisconsin, and Forest Lodge, the family’s historic retreat on Lake Namakagon. The Mary Griggs Burke Center for Freshwater Innovation is unusual not only for having footprints in two of the continent’s major watersheds — the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins — but also for combining scientific research with a communications and public-policy focus. Randy Lehr, the center’s co-director in charge of its research initiatives, says that scientists often fail to consider how their findings will be communicated to an audience outside the walls of their institutions. That’s a big question that the center will address, he explains: “How do you meaningfully take science and integrate it into our lives — the way we make decisions politically and the way individuals make decisions?” “As we leave the century of oil and enter the century of water, water literacy among the general public and policymakers needs to increase,” says Peter Annin, the center’s other co-director and a former environmental journalist. “By marrying science and communications, we can help increase that water literacy, whether it’s about climate-change issues, water-quality issues or water-quantity issues.” One way that the center plans to shape public policy is to use Forest Lodge as “a Camp David–like retreat for people who have expertise in water issues,” says Annin. This fall, the center will host the first of what is hoped to be an annual event: a weekend-long summit that will, after an opening-night panel discussion at the college, bring leading water experts together for an overnight retreat at Forest Lodge. Annin hopes the gathering facilitates a conversation “that helps forward the ball” on water issues. “Forest Lodge is a really great place for those kinds of conversations,” he says. “It’s an inspirational place.”

“He was very amusing and knew how to entertain children. He was full of jokes and funny songs.� Summer days were spent playing tennis and badminton, swimming and sailing, and canoeing down the Namekagon River. When Burke and her friends were old enough to drive, they tooled around in a small Austin, tipping it a couple times and even driving it into the lake. For dinner, usually served at a long dining table set for 12, everyone would change into their evening finery. Afterward, family and friends would gather in the living room for charades and other games. In the late 1920s, Burke’s parents built most of the charmingly rustic vertical log structures still standing today at Forest Lodge,

including a guesthouse with a soaring great room; a sizable boathouse, which later acquired an upper level offering a panoramic view of the lake; and the Cow Palace, which eventually served as a dairy barn for a small herd of Brown Swiss cows that supplied the family with fresh milk. They also acquired considerably more land, including the point across the water from the original property. Burke inherited Forest Lodge from her mother in 1943. Although she and her husband, Jackson Burke, resided mostly in New York City, where they bought an apartment next to their own to display her expansive art collection, she made yearly trips back to her favorite place on the planet for the rest of her life.

Sharp Shooter Wisconsin native Michael McPhail goes for Olympic gold this summer. | BY KATE NELSON

a point, just a hairline on his shots. Although McPhail remains disappointed about that outcome, he describes the overall Olympic experience, particularly the opening ceremony, as surreal. “I walked in on the second row right behind the flag,” he notes. “As a soldier, it was a big deal. It was a moving experience. I’d never experienced anything like that.” “It’s unlike any other competition,” he adds. “I’ve heard people say you shouldn’t be intimidated by the Olympics because they’re just like any other competition. When I hear people say that, I have a hard time believing they’ve ever been to the Olympics. It’s a world away from other competitions.” He’ll get the chance to redeem himself this summer, and this time, he’s got his sights set on gold. His rigorous training involves shooting some 100 rounds a day, which fits well with his role as an instructor/shooter with the Marksmanship Unit. And McPhail credits the unit with much of his success. “One thing the public doesn’t realize when they watch the Olympics and see one athlete competing is how many people it took to get that person there — it’s hundreds if not thousands,” he says. “Without the Marksmanship Unit, there’s no way I would have the No. 1 rank or would have made any Olympic team. Without the Army, those things are not possible.” While it’s full steam ahead until August, McPhail will be ready for a break after Rio. He’ll likely spend more time with his wife and two young children, do some hunting with his friends, and perhaps even head back to his native Wisconsin, where he returns every couple years. But chances are he won’t rest on his laurels too long. “I haven’t achieved my goal yet,” he explains. “I want to win at the Olympics. Until that one’s achieved, I’ll probably be here doing the same thing. And I imagine before I achieve that goal, I’ll have another one lined up.”

rowing up in the small southwestern Wisconsin town of Darlington, Michael McPhail was indoctrinated into hunting culture early on. Come this August, he’ll go into the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as the world’s best rifleman. And it’s been quite the journey getting there. Although hunting of all sorts was a family affair — “We didn’t discriminate in my house,” he says with a laugh — it wasn’t until McPhail was in his early teens and was taken under the wing of family friend Bernie Weigel that shooting evolved from a hobby to a way of life. “Without him, there’s no way I would be where I am today,” the 34-year-old says of his childhood mentor. Every day of pheasant-hunting season during the seventh and eighth grades, he’d hurry home after school to meet Weigel and head out into the field. His success as a rifle competitor earned him a spot on the shooting team at University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh, where he met his wife, Kari, who shares his sharp-shooting enthusiasm. Shortly after earning his degree, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was assigned to the Marksmanship Unit, an elite group of the world’s top shooters. That meant a move to Fort Benning, Georgia, for the Wisconsin natives. McPhail continued to establish himself as a formidable foe on both national and international stages. And that led to the realization of a childhood dream: competing in the Olympics. He took with him to the 2012 London games the Anschutz 1613 he bought from coach Weigel back when he was a teenager. “When he sold me the rifle, I told him that gun’s gonna go the Olympics,” recalls McPhail. He was considered a medal contender in the 50-meter prone rifle competition. He tied for eighth place in the qualifying round and went to a shoot-off for the last spot in the finals. He ultimately missed the cut by three-tenths of
