With the changing of the seasons comes a new Made Here collection. The eighth iteration of the series will again turn unoccupied storefronts, asphalt lots, and building walls into makeshift galleries. Downtown visitors will have a lot to check out as they stroll the area, with 42 window displays by 40-plus Minnesota artists and 120 students. They’ll be exploring the theme of “future.” Pieces include an installation by Asia Ward that plays with holographic material and sunlight, a gorgeous mandala by Neal Peterson inspired by the streets of Minneapolis, and some truly trippy mirror works by Erik Farseth. The opening reception this Thursday, May 4, at the AC Hotel will offer walking tours led by Made Here mastermind Joan Vorderbruggen at 6 and 7 p.m., street performers, sidewalk activities, and tunes from DJ Mad Mardigan.
