Art pop-ups in downtown Minneapolis continue this summer with this new public project featuring nine large-scale portraits featuring regulars in the area. The pieces were created by local artists, and cover five themes: workforce (by Jake Armour), transportation (by Xavier Tavera), LGBT+ pride (by Nancy Musinguzi), theatregoers (by Maya Washington), and youth (by Wing Young Huie and FAIR School students). For the opening celebration, Hennepin Theatre Trust will invite the artists’ to talk about their work and hand out maps of where to find the portraits. DJ Izzie P will provide tunes, and Blue Lady, Taja Will and ZAMYA Theater Project will also perform. There will also be snacks, a selfie booth, and an arts activity.
