Event Details

Friends and neighbors of all ages and abilities are invited to transform an ordinary Snelling Avenue fence into an extraordinary work of art. Under the direction of Twin Cities artist Denise Tennen and trained teen leaders, we will weave colorful strips of fabric onto a fence into a design created by neighborhood kids in collaboration with artist Yuya Negishi (Yuyart). The result of this dynamic, multicultural, intergenerational project will be a beautiful reminder of the simple joy and awesome power of doing something together.

So come on over and leave your mark on this amazing community-created project – no prior experience necessary, training will be provided on site. We’ll get to work Saturday, October 7th from 10-6pm and continue Sunday, October 8th from 10-4pm. A celebration will follow with oven-fresh pizza provided by Hamline Church.

Several organizations collaborated to bring this community art event to the Midway. We are grateful for the generous financial support from Hamline Church United MethodistThe Hamline to Hamline Collaboration, andMidway Men’s Club at the Minnesota State Fair and logistical support fromHamline Elementary SchoolHamline Midway CoalitionHancock Recreation Center and Midway Murals.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
