This week, MCTC Art Instructor Greg Rose was named a Made Here resident artist for the 730 Hennepin Avenue City Lofts Building.
Made Here is an initiative of the Hennepin Theater Trust which creates art in vacant or underutilized space along the City’s entertainment corridor. “MCTC has been hailed as a leader in revitalizing Hennepin Avenue by city officials and the American Institute of Architects,” said MCTC Associate Vice President of Strategic Partnerships Mike Christenson. “This campus recognizes the remarkable progress and inspiration brought by the Historic Theater Trust, Made Here, and its artistic teams. We are honored to have Greg Rose working with our students every day and pleased to partner with Hennepin Avenue leaders.
Made Here launched in 2013 with visual displays in vacant storefronts and commercial spaces. Today, it infuses a variety of public spaces with art and art-inspired experiences from pop-up parks to live performances to rotating exhibits to fence wraps around construction sites.
