Be an opener of doors*

December 11, 2021

The picture below is the entrance to the Fallout Arts Initiative on Stevens Avenue in South Minneapolis. They’re closed now for all public events because of COVID, but they’re still offering community meals six days a week and hosting a food shelf on Saturday mornings. They accept donations if you’re so inclined.

I’m not so good with colors, but I think there’s some crimson here. You tell me.

    I love that Minneapolis turns tragedy and hard times into the bright light of visual/street art, as part of basic needs being met.
    The Twin Cities can be proud of that.

      Artists can be cool. And yeah, the Twin Cities might not be perfect, but we get a lot of things right and it’s comforting to know that a group of people, with I’m guessing very little funding, has kept on feeing people throughout the pandemic.

    That’s a lovely door! So creative and there is definitely crimson there. Thanks for sharing.
