This project is a part of Creative Citymaking, a unique partnership between the City of Minneapolis and Intermedia Arts that pairs artists and city planners to work together on creative ways to approach real city projects.
Today was the maiden voyage of the Mobile Tracing Unit. Couldn't have asked for better weather. I was somewhat worried that no one would show up, but tons of people involved in the neighborhood came out to draw with me. At a certain point, we had too many people - a good problem to have. The mix of people was incredible - we had Council member Kevin Reich and lots of northeast artists, but the best part is we got to interact with the people on their way to the laundromat or grocery store. It was a incredibly rewarding day and I'm looking forward to the next drawing event.
