Art on the Rooftop: a Party to Benefit Northern Spark 

Excerpt from a recent e-newsletter from Northern

Every year, we work with some of the most talented artists in the Twin Cities. This year during our benefit party, you’ll get to meet them up close and personal. Art on the Rooftop: a Party to Benefit Northern Spark will connect guests with artists exploring this year’s theme Commonality:

  • Carry On Homes, the winner of the Creative City Challenge, will create an immersive experience around ideas of home with an Instagrammable backdrop.
  • Mischa Kegan and Jonathan Herrera’s window-drawn art allows guests to trace the drawings with their own poster to bring home!
  • Kashimana Ahua’s The Applause Posse, (NS 2017) will serenade you with compliments.
  • Clarence White (NS 2013, 2017) and his vintage typewriter will create poems inspired by your intimate conversation with the poet.
  • Danielle Everine’s (NS 2018) installation will spark the night!
  • And while you jam to DJ Sarah White, indulge in complementary food and drinks from the finest local restaurants!

Art on the Rooftop is at the rooftop lounge at Le Meridien Chambers Hotel on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 7-10pm.
