Earlier this month, The Dayton’s Project unveiled the first of several installations in the Dayton’s skyways. The whole development is on schedule to open this spring and will include retail shopping and direct access to the food hall on the lower level.  

While people wait for the project to be completed, they can enjoy the first installation: a mural created by Juxtaposition Arts, a visual art center established in North Minneapolis in 1995 that works to empower youth in the community and provide access to creative projects and professional design experience across the city.  

“The development team behind The Dayton’s Project chose the project for its connection to Minnesota history and its opportunity to highlight all that Minneapolis has to offer,” says Erin Fitzgerald from Transwestern, the leasing broker for The Dayton’s Project. “The artistic partnership with Juxtaposition Arts is one example of the partnerships we have built and will continue to build as this building hosts the next generation of Minneapolis’ workforce and once again becomes a retail and shopping hub for the city and beyond.” 

Art that depicts the creativity and character of the city of Minneapolis will continue to be on display over the coming months, and already, visitors are excited and sharing positive feedback about the art. For a fun trip out, a beautiful photo background, a look at some local art, or all of the above, check out Dayton’s Skyways and the Juxtaposition Arts’ mural.  

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
