(No) Vacancy

Public Art Installation  |  Summer 2014  |  Mixed media with video projection

This public art installation was commissioned for Made Here in downtown Minneapolis. It occupies 18 second floor windows of the old Witt-Mitchell building at the corner of Hennepin Ave. and 7th St. This piece is meant to pay homage to the businesses and life that once occupied this space, while simultaneously highlighting the number of vacancies in a prominent urban setting. Thanks to Joan Vorderbruggen for making it possible and to Michael Wolfe for video assistance. Photos by Steven Lang.
