Creative City Challenges Receives Greening Award


Northern is pleased to announce that the Creative City Challenge has received a Greening Award from the Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District. The Greening Public Realm Awards recognize projects that create and maintain public green spaces that help to enhance the vibrancy of Downtown Minneapolis.

The Creative City Challenge is a collaboration between Northern, the Minneapolis Convention Center, and the Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy Program of the City of Minneapolis. It is an annual competition for Minnesota artists, architects, and designers to create and install a temporary artwork on the Minneapolis Convention Center Plaza that acts as a participatory platform for summer-long programming and encourages a sense of connectedness to the city.
