Arts on Chicago
The Arts on Chicago initiative is an arts-based community development project in Minneapolis, MN, led by Pillsbury House + Theatre, Upstream Arts, the Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association, and MCAD Professor Natasha Pestich with support from the Ward 8 Council Office of Elizabeth Glidden. Arts on Chicago is funded in part by Artplace, a collaboration of twelve of the nation’s leading foundations, eight government agencies including the National Endowment for the Arts, and six financial institutions across the U.S.
Arts on Chicago will implement 20 art projects in one year to knit together existing creative assets in the Central, Powderhorn, Bancroft, Bryant communities along Chicago Avenue from 32nd Street to 42nd Street, using the process to build a framework for the ongoing support of a vibrant arts and cultural district.
PPNA is working on two placemaking projects for the Spring of 2013. The Utility Boxes on Chicago Avenue will be covered with Powderhorn365 images selected by our community. On June 8, Powderhorn is painting the town with a Paint the Pavement project. Stayed to for more information on the painting, family fun and community meal.
