The Urban Sketchers Twin Cities September sketchcrawl will celebrate the Green Line light rail line between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul.
The Green Line light rail line connects the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Running through myriad neighborhoods and business districts, it joins sports venues to restaurants to neighborhoods to state governance. This our opportunity to capture the vibrant places along the line, it's unique and art-enhanced stations, and to sketch people as they use this newest addition to our light rail network.
WHERE and WHEN:
Saturday 24 September at noon. Choose your starting point -- either meet Ken Avidor at the Union Depot station or meet Amber Sausen at the Target Field station.
The two groups (Minneapolis and St. Paul) will sketch at their respective ends of the line and then jump aboard at approximately 12:30. Ride the entire length of the line or jump on and off to sketch at stations. This will be a free form outing.
