Christine Podas-Larson, executive director of Public Art Saint Paul, and Wing Young Huie present the opening of The University Avenue Project.
Presented by Public Art Saint Paul, Wing Young Huie’s University Avenue Project: The Language of Urbanism, a Six-Mile Photographic Inquiry, will transform a major urban thoroughfare in Saint Paul, Minnesota, into a six-mile public gallery of over 400 photographs. Wing’s images reveal the dizzying socioeconomic, cultural, and ethnic realities of the citizens who work, live, and go to school along this corridor that is jammed with storefronts, taverns, big-box retailers, blue-collar neighborhoods and condominium communities.
Each night at twilight, the University Avenue Project’s central landmark site at 1433 University will feature a two-hour projection show accompanied by recorded soundtrack from local musicians.
A spectacular Project(tion) site creates a central landmark at 1433 University Avenue. Here Wing’s images will be projected nightly onto billboard-size screens and accompanied by soundtracks from local musicians. The show will begin each evening at twilight and will run for 2 hours.
The Project(ion) site is conceived and produced by Northern Lights.mn with MS&R Architects.
