UNIVERSITY AVENUE PROJECT LAUNCHES MAY 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------
NATION’S LARGEST PUBLIC ART INSTALLATION OPENS WITH
A DAY ON THE AVENUE AND TWILIGHT PROJECTION SHOW OUTDOORS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Public Art Saint Paul proudly presents acclaimed artist Wing Young Huie’s six-mile tapestry of life in a vibrant community: St. Paul’s University Avenue corridor


St. Paul, Minn., April 23, 2010 - More than three years in the making, acclaimed photographer Wing Young Huie’s "University Avenue Project" will launch Saturday, May 1, with a special day on University Avenue and a twilight projection of more than 450 powerful images chronicling life along St. Paul’s most vibrant thoroughfare.

Presented by Public Art Saint Paul, the University Avenue Project will be the largest public art exhibition in the United States this year -- transforming six miles of the avenue from the KSTP tower to the state Capitol into a gallery both monumental and intimate.

On launch day, Wing’s photos will appear in more than 70 streetfront building venues along the avenue, clustered in "nodes" at several intersections (details below). In addition, the first in a series of large scale murals will appear on the sides of selected buildings.

Wing and project volunteers will be at various nodes on the avenue from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. to greet the public and offer information on the project.

As a celebration of University Avenue, everyone is invited to spend time on the avenue and dine at one of University Avenue’s many restaurants before the day’s centerpiece event: the 8 p.m. projection of more than 450 photos on a giant outdoor screen at the "Project(ion) Site," 1433 University Ave. The projection will be accompanied by a specially commissioned soundtrack of recordings from Twin Cities musicians.

At the Project(ion) site, signed copies of The University Project Vol. 1 book will be available for purchase from 7-9 p.m. The book is the first of two volumes chronicling the project, published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.

"It has taken the hard work and good will of many people in the community to pull this together, inspired by Wing’s vision and images," said Christine Podas-Larson, president of Public Art Saint Paul. "Through all of our efforts, we’ve created something important for the city of St. Paul and for public art in the United States."

·    Students at schools in the area, from elementary age through college, will use the University Avenue Project as a learning laboratory through a specially designed curriculum.
·    In an unprecedented commitment, the Minnesota Historical Society Press will publish the exhibition in two accessible, magazine-like books: Vol. 1 available on May 1 and the second, due in August, including new photos by Wing of people interacting with the exhibition.

 "This is not only a six-mile public art exhibition," Wing said. "This is a six-mile classroom that explores the changing cultural landscape of urban life in St. Paul."

Unprecedented in its scope and ambition, the University Avenue Project and its subjects carry messages for every community in a rapidly changing America.
