NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Fenceweaving this Saturday at the Midtown Farmers Market


The weather looks better for Day 2 of the Fenceweaving Mural project at the Midtown Farmers Market.  You can join neighbors this Saturday to transform a chain link fence along 22nd Avenue into a piece of community art. 

The weaving is led by local artist Denise Tennen and is designed to represent a sustainable vision for the neighborhood.  The initial design includes people biking and dancing, and “enormous vegetables in the sky,” said Tennen.  The final design will unfold as people come and add their piece of fabric to the project. 

The Fenceweaving is part of several projects facilitated by Corcoran Neighborhood Organization intended to use “public art as a vehicle to unite neighbors and turn ordinary spaces into public places.” 

Denise S. Tennen is a sculptor and architect, and her specialty is “creating site-specific installations expressive of their community,” according to her Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association profile.

Saturday, June 2, 2012 during the Midtown Farmers Market 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The fence is along 22nd Avenue S in the block south of Lake Street, Minneapolis.
