If you haven’t had a chance to check out the CarryOn Homes temporary art pavilion in downtown Minneapolis, this is the perfect opportunity. The structure was created by five different artists from five different countries, and imagines a world without boundaries. The project, which was the winner of the 2018 Creative City Challenge, debuted at the Northern Spark Festival. Now it’s at the Commons, offering a beautiful outdoor piece of art that visitors can enjoy. This Saturday, all kinds of things are planned, including a writing workshop with local artist Meena Mangalvedhekar, followed by performances by Southeast Asian storytelling collective the SEAD Project and New Delhi-born/Minneapolis-based composer and vocalist Rita Gunguly. The event wraps up with a free community meal provided by the St. Paul restaurant Lao Thai, as well as free milk by TeaBar. Find more info on the project at carryonhomes.com.
