This program was recorded on August 27th, 2020.
Since May 25, 2020, George Floyd's death at the hands of the Minneapolis police has sparked civil uprisings throughout Minnesota, and in this context, street art transforms urban space and fosters a sustained political dialogue, reaching a wide audience and making change possible, as seen in art throughout the Twin Cities and eventually the world. In this presentation, professors and student researchers with the Urban Art Mapping Research Project examine street art in three distinct, adjacent neighborhoods in Saint Paul, Minnesota in a comparative fashion.
