GenArt at Heritage Park
The GenArt program brought youth and elders from the Heritage Park neighborhood together in the creation of photographic, written, visual, and musical art inspired by conversations about identity, time, and memory. Participants produced musical tracks, created creative writing pieces, poetry and portrait photography, and worked across generations to collaboratively design and create a graffiti board.
GenArt was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
