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.

John Leguizamo brings Latin History for Morons to the State Theatre

LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS is inspired by the near total absence of Latinos from his son’s American History books. John Leguizamo embarks on an outrageously funny, frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school history project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Pitbull into 110 irreverent and uncensored minutes above and beyond his unique style.
