Submit photos

The University Avenue Project invites you to submit photos for our Project(ion) Site!

Have your photos of St. Paul’s University Avenue neighborhoods projected on our forty-foot screen on the evening of Sunday, September 19 for our “COMMUNITY PHOTO NIGHT.” This is open to all photographers, amateur of professional, University Avenue resident or not.

All types of photography will be considered, including photos of people, things, landscapes, conceptual, or family snapshots (but only your family snapshots if you live in a University Avenue neighborhood). The photos should be taken in the area north of I94, south of Pierce Butler, East of Emerald Street (two blocks west of Hwy 280) and west of 35E.

Send a maximum of 3 jpgs (around 1.2 mb) to:
Or drop off a CD (maximum of 3 jpgs) at the Project(ion) Site anytime during projection hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 8:30 – 10:30 pm, 1433 University Avenue (across the street from Walmart, next to the Town House Bar).

This is not a photography contest, rather a way of creating an epic family album from all points of view! Photos selected will be at the discretion of Wing Young Huie.

The University Avenue Project

The University Avenue Project, produced by Public Art Saint Paul, is an extraordinary, large-scale public installation of hundreds of photographs that reflect the incredible diversity of its neighborhoods–taken by Wing Young Huie–that are exhibited along six miles of University Avenue in Saint Paul in store windows and on sides of buildings.

Project(ion) Site

The centerpiece is the Project(ion) Site where a giant, outdoor slide show of Wing’s photographs are projected on a 40 foot screen, accompanied by a soundtrack from 40 local musicians. The last Saturday of each month, we invite local talent to take the stage for The University Avenue Project Cabarets.

Conceived by Steve Dietz of Northern and designed by Meyer, Scherer and Rockcastle, Ltd. (MS&R), the site is built from cargo containers.  2 large towers along the edge of University provide for projection of images that will be visible for a mile in each direction.  Entering the site, visitors can view the nightly show that will be projected on a 40 foot screen.
