POSTERS FOR PARKS OCT. 22
Back in person at Royal Foundry Craft Spirits after two years of online-only sales, Twin Citians can once again come together for the annual Posters for Parks for Show. The 2022 gallery-style event on Saturday, Oct. 22, 4-8 p.m. at the Royal Foundry showcases the work of over 40 local artists who created original poster designs inspired by Minneapolis’s renowned parks and the people, plants, and animals that share them. Posters for Parks benefits the Twin Cities community, with 50% of each $45 poster purchase going to the artist, and proceeds from the remaining 50% designated for the Minneapolis Parks Foundation’s People for Parks Fund. Last year, more than $36,000 was raised, which helped the Parks Foundation make nine equity-aligned grants throughout Minneapolis in 2022, supporting Slow Roll MSP, swimming lessons at Webber Natural Swimming Pool, and Afro Cardio/Yoga classes at North Commons Park and much more.
