 MadeHereMN for Artist Akiko Ostlund by Lance W Conrad

MadeHereMN for Artist Akiko Ostlund by Lance W Conrad

 I recently collaborated with artist Akiko Ostlund for Made Here MN, a public art showcase in the heart of downtown Minneapolis through The Hennepin Theatre Trust.

 

This showcase of local artists is displayed throughout west downtown in local windows and vacant storefronts.  Akiko created a collage of portraits which is up on 8th and Hennepin near First Avene.  It's a direct response to the recent news of neo-nazi and kkk movements taking place in our city.  She chose 15 artists of color to center our innate joy and freedom in the wake of violence and extremism.  It's a really great piece and will be up through the superbowl.  If you are ever downtown you may find me!
