On the front of the historic State Theatre in the Hennepin Theatre District, you’ll see something that stands apart from the artwork and graffiti across the Twin Cities. Visual artist and muralist Reggie LeFlore spent two weeks painting “The Overseer: Divinity and Humanity,” a triptych of portraits that illustrates a story he’s writing.
Now in its second year, these large-scale portraits join existing murals and public art projects in the District with captivating portraits shot by renowned Minnesota artists showcasing themes including identity, empowerment, trans equity, community outreach through violence prevention and social justice for missing and murdered indigenous women.
