The MN4MN Blank Canvas Project aims to explore the intersection of art, design, fashion and photography. The project invited 13 local Twin-Cities artists and photographers to collaborate on a showcase of inspiration and creativity.

By expanding the role of sneakers from utilitarian fashion accessory to artistic inspiration to art itself, we reconsider an everyday item as art, encouraging appreciation for the art and craft that also informs the creation of fashion.

The final project involved 2 stages. In the first stage, 13 well known Minnesota visual artists were given a pair of sneakers. The question posed to all of them began at the same starting point. “What does this object represent, to you... and what does it inspire?”

There were no limits to the final form of the object, the invitation is open to imagination and creativity. The outcome represents the many paths and outcomes by unique creative minds, starting from the same point.

In a second stage, the finished sneaker art objects were passed off to 13 Minnesota photographers who were invited to photograph the remixed/recreated artist created sneaker objects into a fine art photograph.

There were also no limits here to what and how the photographer chooses to capture the sneakers.

The final sneaker art objects and photographs will be exhibited at a popup event at Mia (Minneapolis Institute of Art Thursday September 24th, from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. for more details.
