“The Phoenix of Phillips”, a new literary magazine sponsored by the Semilla Community Arts program of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church will make its debut at the Midtown Global Market on Thursday, January 29, with a program at 6 pm. The annual youth photography show of St. Paul’s “We Are Midtown Phillips” will also have its opening that evening.
For the past eight years, St. Paul’s Semilla program has taught mosaics, mural arts, photography, puppetry and creative writing to over 1900 people and installed 21 murals and over 50 other artistic place holders throughout the neighborhood of Phillips. Semilla means “seed” in Spanish, and it is our passion to plant seeds of hope, justice and beauty in our community.
“The Phoenix of Phillips” includes the winners of the youth poetry contest, and writing by children, teens and adults, some of whom are established writers, some of whom are publishing their first work. Writers will read from their work at the January 29 event.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Special thanks to Midtown Phillips Neighborhood Assn. Inc.
