Community Unveiling – St. Paul Murals Project
Friday, September 29, 4-6 p.m.
Hmong Village | 1001 Johnson Parkway, St. Paul
Come help us celebrate the M’s new murals honoring St. Paul’s Hmong community!
This family-friendly ribbon-cutting celebrates both the new mural at Hmong Village and the M’s partners in St. Paul’s Hmong community, whose contributions helped make this expression of creativity and culture possible. Mingle with the M’s lead mural artist, Vanghoua Anthony Vue, and his partnering local artists, and then explore the rich abundance of food, drink, and shopping at this Eastside cultural hub.
The new mural was created by Minnesota Museum of American Art (the M) guest artist Vanghoua Anthony Vue (Brisbane, Australia) with local artists Xee Reiter (MN), Christina Vang (MN), Melissa Vang (MN), and Shoua Yang (WI). This is one of three such murals commissioned by the M this fall.
The M’s Saint Paul Murals Project is made possible, in part, by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, with support from the City of Saint Paul, Lowertown Future Fund, Saint Paul Neighborhood STAR program, PAK Properties, Hmong Museum, Center for Hmong Arts and Talent, Wet Paint, Griffith University, Sherwin Williams, Hmong Village, Studia H, and Public Art Saint Paul.
The M’s exhibitions and programs are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant and an Arts Access grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
