Living Banners And Words For Winter On Nicollet Mall says
Northern is teaming up with The Minneapolis Foundation and the Downtown Council to bring Living Banners by Piotr Szyhalski to the Nicollet Mall. This sweeping, poetry-inspired art installation will be on display January 30 – February 5, “wrapping” Nicollet Mall between 12th and 5th streets, along with short poems about winter by local writers displayed on electronic road construction signs.

These word-laden works will kick off with a spectacular recorded sound and light show in Peavey Plaza with four showings throughout the evening of Monday, January 30 at 5:20, 6:20, 7:20 and 8:20pm. The sound and light shows are presented in partnership with the Minnesota Orchestra and University of Minnesota student engineers. Everyone is invited to bundle up and join the musical magic as part of The Great Northern celebration of all things winter.
