My name is Tammy Ward and I live in North Minneapolis, in the Harrison Neighborhood. 

I have lived here almost four years and have seen many changes.  Harrison is truly a vibrant and upcoming neighborhood. Change is steadily happening in a positive direction. I decided to show in pictures the eclectic feel of Harrison though murals painted on some of the buildings in the neighborhood.

  • These are great and the stuff that Annie is talking about are great as well! Murals for the win! - by John Slade on Mon, 05/20/2013 - 12:29pm
  • Most of the mural shown in this article have covered up an array of murals that were painted on the walls in the mid-80's when the Harrison Neighborhood Association received Arts funding for a youth - mural arts project. Walls were done at that time on Milda's Cafe, the Dental Office building and Roger's Market. Those murals were put together as students gathered oral history of the neighborhood first and then on those stories put together to characterize the first set of murals. They have since been covered over with these new ones but the fact remains Murals have played an important role in telling the History and stories of the Harrison Neighborhood the last 30 years. - by Annie Young on Sun, 05/19/2013 - 6:02pm
