This Thursday, Future: Made Here is officially launching.

The intention of the Made Here project is to create a walk-able art experience for people in the West Downtown district of Minneapolis.  As a part of it, many storefronts have been made available to the Hennepin Theater Trust, the organization behind Made Here, to showcase art and installations created by Minnesota artists.

Looking pretty good, if I say so myself!

I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of it, and really looking forward to the launch event this week, especially since this will be my first public art exhibition!  The launch party will be from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Thursday night at the AC Hotel in Minneapolis, and will feature DJ Mad Mardigan, street performers, and more.  There will be walking tours of the many showcases, as well.

Working with the Made Here Minnesota crew has been a blast, and I’ve fallen in love with the building my showcase is in.  If only money were no object so I could turn it into a studio space…  Made Here provided professional installers who made the installation process a cinch, and I’m so tickled with how my showcase has turned out!

Come on out on Thursday, meet some cool artists, see some awesome art and have a great time!  I hope to see you there!
