Objects from Community Engaged Art: A Holiday Show
Objects from Community Engaged Art: A Holiday Show will feature physical objects created by eight
artists working in various forms of public practice in South Minneapolis. Many of the works featured are
the result of community-based projects – gorgeous works of art and poetry that
have played a supporting role in community building, public art and social
engagement. Objects from Community
Engaged Art puts the focus on the objects themselves. These photographs,
prints, drawings and books, which are a part of each artist’s broader artistic
practice, are works of art in their own right.
This one-weekend event will also offer the public a chance to purchase art at accessible prices, ranging from five to several hundred dollars. Most of the featured works have never been commercially available before. The eight artists featured represent a wide range of media and styles, connected by their emphasis on work that addresses the intersections of people and places outside of gallery and museum walls.
