Kulture Klub Collaborative, a local non-profit arts organization that brings together artists and homeless teens at YouthLink/Project OffStreets, a crisis drop-in center- located in downtown Minneapolis, will be involved with the 2007 Homeless Memorial March and Service. We are excited about the collaboration and to have them involved.
Artist-in-residence Xavier Tavera will be creating a guerilla cinema art installation at the Hennepin County Government Center. The guerilla cinema installation projects images on a large scale in public spaces. Quite often the images being projected are occurring immediately at the site. Last year Tavera taught a workshop in the artform at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Exciting stuff!
Tavera is one of Minnesota’s premier photographers. He’s been featured in numerous local publications and has exhibited at the Weismann Art Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Plains Art Museum and at the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City.
Works of art by teens experiencing homelessness will be on exhibit during the community meal that follows the Service of Remembrance. See the full schedule for the evening.
