Hidden Minneapolis: Intermedia Arts 2005

Intermedia Arts is in the middle of the block on the West side on Lyndale between 28th Street and 29th Street in South Minneapolis. The building is a part performance space, part display space and part interactive community arts organization. Every space is used, including the outside and sometimes including the bathrooms. For many years, they have been a venue for the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Since 2005, whenever I've dropped by to see a Fringe show, I've also taken pictures of the murals on the front of the building. Some of these are in the Fringe Festival galleries.

Every year, the murals on the Intermedia Arts building change, and I have an incomplete record of the full front walls. So the first three of these aren't so much "hidden" Minneapolis as "lost" or "ephemeral" Minneapolis. The 2008 set includes pictures of the back and sides of the building, festooned with brightly colored art.

Many on my flist will remember this an early LJ icon.

Hmm... way back when, I remember doing an interview with one of the staff. I wonder what happened to that? Probably in a Fringe podcast...
