Art, Galleries
For several years, Intermedia Arts has been engaged in innovative public works that involve embedding artists in various city of Minneapolis departments to work toward a common goal: eliminating disparities that inhibit equality and opportunity. This work, called Creative CityMaking, has resulted in projects in north Minneapolis, Dinkytown, and elsewhere, and is is being showcased this summer via an interactive visual art exhibition at Intermedia. The show highlights the recent work of these collaborative processes by sharing the tools and methods artists and city staff developed for equitable creative placemaking. Visitors will be able to contribute their own voices to the work through an "equity pulpit" built with youth from Juxtaposition Arts. The exhibition will move to Minneapolis City Hall after closing in August at Intermedia. There will be a public reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 26.
