ACHF Arts Access
More Minnesotans are able to engage in or with the work of Minnesota artists.
Because of its initial location at the Mill City Museum and subsequent touring of the state, thousands of Minnesotans have experienced this presentation. More will be impacted by the installation. it is now touring the state. The project also goes home with the audience through a brochure and an expanded one that I’m preparing for tour venues. A book has been drafted and presently in revision. The aesthetics of the work notwithstanding, the audience was able to identify with a selection of the small group of people that experienced this tragic and totally preventable event. The rest of us had a sense of survivor’s guilt, as many had been on the 35W Bridge that day or week, it could have easily been us. The portraits of the first responders and the twisted remnants of the bridge gave further sense of the wrenching emotional experience, ranging from tragic to heroic, that it was. The project became a BRIDGE between those who lived it and the rest of us.
