Art Connects Us - May 2020 Artists
Hennepin Theatre Trust partnered with Clear Channel Outdoor to produce ten works of original artwork by Minnesota-based artists to be featured on digital billboards across the region with messages of hope and gratitude to those who are working on the front lines during the stay-at-home period of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Eleven artists from diverse backgrounds were selected from the Trust’s broad network of visual artists who participated in the Made Here storefront initiative, a public art project that spanned five years activating vacant commercial storefronts with artistic displays in the Hennepin Theatre District.
Participating artists in May 2020 include:
Huie is a nationally recognized Minneapolis-based photographer, author and winner of the 2020 Award for Excellence from the University of Minnesota Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication Alumni Society Board.
Lang is a photographer and writer, recipient of a Metropolitan Regional Arts Council Artist Initiative Grant and a Loft Mentor Award.
Le Flore is a street and graffiti artist performing live stencil and mural paintings throughout the city.
