Three ways to celebrate and support local culture

Check out the Muralismo Minnesotano exhibit, highlighting the origins of muralism as an artistic and social movement in Latino culture for over a century -- a fact that is too often erased or forgotten. “This exhibit also re-emphasizes that high-quality public art must always be about community-engaged art.” You can see the art in person now through March 18, 2022, at Comunidades Latinas Unidas En Servicio (CLUES), 97 E. 7th Street in Saint Paul. A virtual forum takes place Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022, with a virtual gallery tour on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2022.
