Hennepin Theatre Trust is invigorating the city’s urban canvas for everyone to enjoy with Made Here. This award-winning project transforms underused and unique spaces — between Hennepin Avenue’s 5th and 10th streets — with art created by Minnesota artists.
Since it launched in 2013, Made Here has produced more than 360 window displays in downtown’s commercial spaces – making it the largest initiative of its kind in the country.
Check out our newest installation and celebrated tenth round, Avenues, featuring the works of local community organizations and select alumni artists from past Made Here runs. Their works bring to life the theme “avenues” — a way of approaching a problem or making progress toward something — through large-scale photo banners and vibrant window displays.
Meet the Avenues artists here.
