Shadows at the Crossroads
A long time in the making, these seven sculptures, created collaboratively by iconic Twin Cities artists Seitu Jones and Ta-coumba T. Aiken, continue a project the two made for Nicollet Mall in 1992. Each piece features a shadow/silhouette of a community member, chosen by the Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council, and is embedded with a verse by poet Rosemary Soyini Vinelle Guyton. It’s a lovely tribute not only to the community, but to Jones and Aiken, who have spent decades contributing meaningful sculpture, public works, and public art in the Twin Cities. Thursday’s public reception will include tours, remarks from both artists, and a poetry reading from Guyton. 5 to 8 p.m. Free. Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, 725 Vineland Place, Minneapolis; 612-375-7600. --Camille LeFevre
