During Art Span’s Dogpatch Open Studios weekend MSP Minnesota Street Project will host a free Community Day from 11am-4pm.  Special installations by Dianne Platner, in partnership with Imperfect Produce, will redefine the cosmetic standards for fruits and vegetables by highlighting the beauty and flavor of produce previously deemed as waste. Live yarn bombing demonstrations by Noemesha Williams will brighten the atrium of Minnesota Street Project and visitors will have the opportunity to practice their own creativity with SCRAP Hats, family friendly creative reuse workshops held throughout the day. A lineup of performances will also take place in the atrium including music by Don Prell and his recycled cello, dj sets by Jim Collins, and robotics presentations. Reclaimed will be open for its final day of viewing on Community Day.
