October 17, 2018, Wednesday - This Is Our Downtown Exhibition Opening

Time: 5p - 7p

Location:Hennepin Theatre Trust, 900 Hennepin Avenue

This Is Our Downtown Exhibition Opening

Kulture Klub Collaborative celebrates the opening of "This is our Downtown", a multi-media exhibition of original artwork by young people experiencing or transitioning out of homelessness. The exhibit is the result of a year-long series of artist residencies, and offers each participant’s unique perspectives of downtown Minneapolis. 

Participants, young people between the ages of 16 and 24, collaborated with photographer Wing Young Huie, photographer Nancy Musinguzi, filmmaker John Marks, and videographers Ryan Stopera and Adja Gildersleve of Free Truth Media to create film, photographs, posters, and videos that capture their views of a rapidly changing downtown where they spend much of their lives. 

KKC youth documented and recorded their experiences of Downtown Minneapolis, including the spaces that have particular meaning to them such as the Minneapolis Central Library, Hennepin Avenue, the skyway system, and Loring Park. "This Is Our Downtown" captures a moment in Minneapolis’s history through the eyes of those who know it best.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Additional funding generously provided by the McKnight Foundation, Target Foundation, and individual donors.
