On a beautiful fall day that celebrated the Sokol Minnesota’s Open House participation in Partners in Preservation, Consul General of the Czech Republic (stationed in Chicago), Dana Hunatova, also visited the Community Gate Project in the North High Bridge Park. The artistic installation by artist Craig David celebrates the contributions of Czech and Slovak immigrants in the West End neighborhoods of St. Paul and the CSPS Sokol Hall. The baptismal gate from St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Church compliments the theme of the installation, AntonínDvořák’s opera/Rusalka/.Dvořák visited the West End and the CSPS Sokol Hall in 1893.
