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.  

W Minneapolis - The Foshay has introduced a new initiative “Welcome at W” that provides nonprofits complimentary use of its boardroom to help plan, prepare and propel Minneapolis to a new future. The Foshay was one of the first hotels in Minneapolis to adopt WeFrame, an innovative meeting room smart board technology that nonprofits can utilize. 

 

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Minneapolis, located in a new 34-story building at the top of Nicollet Mall, the city’s pedestrian thoroughfare, is expected to open its doors in June 2022. Only a few short blocks from the Mississippi River, the mixed-use complex also will serve as RBC Wealth Management’s U.S. headquarters.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
