New public art showcases people of Hennepin Ave

Inspired by the people whose experiences and stories create the unique vibrancy of Hennepin Avenue, this major public art project captures the heart and soul of Minneapolis’ most famous street. It features nine large-scale portraits displayed on five buildings between 5th and 10th Streets in downtown Minneapolis. The portraits are created by renowned Minnesota artists and feature the avenue’s regulars, from business owners to transit workers to theatregoers.

RENT returns to the Orpheum Theatre August 14 – 18

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production.

Bill Maher returns to the State Theatre August 17

For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last fourteen years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 41 Emmy nominations.
