Join us at Homewood Studios for conversation and celebration of Northside artists and creativity on the 10th Anniversary of FLOW: Northside Art Crawl. RSVP on Facebook. 

Beginning at 5pm, the ten FLOW postcard artists will be the featured guests for an artists’ talk focused on the question, “What does it mean to be an artist working, intentionally working, in a community, in our community of North Minneapolis?”

JXTA Contemporary Art Studio apprentices Kayla Baribeau and Canaan Ray-Armstrong along with other Northside artists, will talk on the panel for approximately 60-90 minutes.

Other activities happening that evening on Plymouth Ave include cultural dancing and music at Asian Media Access, a street party between Russell and Sheridan Avenues, examples of work by artists living in the new Art Space Artists Homes on Plymouth, and the gallery show at Homewood Studios – RE: Action ~ Gathering Momentum, a group show by thirteen women artists from the Twin Cities.

A trio of dynamic Minneapolis design leaders will be the highlight of a highly-interactive event about Parks and the Next Generation. Together they will explore questions facing our world-class park system:

  • How are youth engaging with parks and public space differently than a generation ago?
  • What innovations are the next generation bringing to the use and design of future parks?
  • How is “Tactical Urbanism” being used to activate public spaces in creative, playful new ways.
  • Who are the park users of tomorrow and how can parks adapt to meet those changing needs.
  • Our three featured guests will discuss projects now underway in North Minneapolis and demonstrate how youth are recreating our parks, in what promises to be a fun and interactive event.

Featuring:

Roger Cummings, Founder, Juxtaposition Arts and Loeb Fellow;

Tom Fisher, outgoing Dean, University of Minnesota College of Design and incoming Dayton Hudson Land Grant Chair and Director, University of Minnesota Metropolitan Design Center; and

Kristine Miller, Professor and Department Head, University of Minnesota College of Design Department of Landscape Architecture.

With Special Guest Cameron Downey, JXTA Apprentice
