Secret City isn’t a secret anymore


Eariler In June, Northern Spark provided a collection of all-night arts events in the Lowertown section of St. Paul, and this weekend Minneapolis will answer with its own late-night arts extravaganza – a free festival called Secret City.

Musicians, actors, dancers, bicyclists, ping pong players and more will congregate starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, lighting up the Midtown Greenway and sections of downtown and the Loring Park area, including the Minneapolis Convention Center.

The programming for the Convention Center Plaza includes a new sculpture that draws on tweets to reflect the city’s mood. The programming in the plaza is curated by artist Leah Nelson, an award-winning dancer, actor and choreographer. She talked with Janis Lane-Ewart on the Morning Blend, who started the interview asking about one of the features of Secret City, a bicycle ballet. [Audio below]
