Great River Arts presents dinner theater production ‘Crimes of the Heart’

This Crimes of the Heart-inspired painting was created by local artist Joseph Hynes and is on display at Great River Arts. “This painting was inspired by the line of the play, ‘After I Shot Zachary,’ I put the gun down on the piano bench, and then I went out into the kitchen and made up a pitcher of lemonade,” said Hynes.
