Hennepin Avenue Cultural Corridor, Minneapolis, MN
September 27, 2018
“As part of an assets-based process, we wanted to shift the conversation to focus on what’s already great about this place—what’s already working,”
– Olga Viso, Executive Director of the Walker Arts Center
How can the arts be at the center of a planning process to re-envision a major urban corridor?
Hennepin Avenue, the cultural spine of Minneapolis, is more of an axis with intermittent hot-spots than a continuously active pedestrian space. To help fill in the missing gaps, many of the cultural organizations that line the avenue came together to work with the city in transforming the historic urban corridor into a cohesive and dynamic public space.
