Reminder: The Awesome Midtown Greenway Sketch-Out is This Sunday!

Many of my friends are artists and many of my friends are cyclists and some of my friends are both. The upcoming Twin Cities Urban Sketcher sketch-out on the Midtown Greenway in Minneapolis  is an opportunity for urban sketchers and urban cyclists to enjoy each other's company. One thing urban cyclists and urban sketchers share is we enjoy the urban experience in an unhurried manner. We both explore the urban environment in a pleasant and convivial manner.

This sketch-out is not limited to bicyclists. The Greenway has a path for people who prefer to walk. For those who would prefer to stay in one place, there is plenty to sketch at the Midtown Global Market where we will all end up to look at each other's work at 3 PM. There is also a great deal to sketch within walking distance of the Midtown Global Market on Lake Street and the Midtown Global Market.

Bicyclists will of course, be able to range further from the Midtown Global Market. The Greenway stretches from Uptown to the Mississippi River. There is much to sketch in the neighborhoods along the way and on the Greenway itself. There's the iconic Martin Sabo Bridge and Lake Calhoun and there are lots and lots of cyclists (the Freewheel Bike Center is a good place to get a cup of coffee and sketch the passing parade).

For safety sake, find a place to sketch out of the way of bicyclists, walkers and joggers. Please do not trespass on private property, especially railroad tracks.

If you are a cyclist, please stop and say hello if you see a sketcher.

We meet 3 PM at the middle of the Midtown Global Market (where Salty Tart is). For non-bicyclists there's plenty to sketch inside the market. In case of rain, we all sketch in the market.
