September 14, 2019 Declared “JXTA Day”


Saturday, September 14, 2019, was declared “JXTA Day” by the City of Minneapolis! We announced this exciting news during Open Streets West Broadway, where we celebrated a $50,000 Market Impact Fund grant from U.S. Bank to help fund the inaugural season of programming on our skate-able art plaza along with our partners City of Skate and West Broadway Coalition.
