Out and about in the neighborhood: Minneapolis college of art and design


Minneapolis College of Art and Design’s (MCAD) bustling campus in the Whittier neighborhood is home to student housing, outdoor art displays, indoor galleries, art classes, continuing education, summer camps, and more. TMC Publications owner and publisher Tesha M. Christensen and marketing representative Suzie Marty got a crash course from Annie Gillette Cleveland (vice president of communications and marketing strategy), left, and Mara Rosen (marketing coordinator and project manager) about MCAD last week. Seven students apply for positions to get real world experience creating the marketing materials for MCAD - which include the ads that appear in the Connector. In the main gallery space, an exhibit features Jerome Fellowship artists KOBI, Sarah Sampedro, Brooks Turner and Shun Yong. Upstairs, there is a Faculty Sabbatical Exhibition and Forum through April 15. “Love from Minnneapolis” by Maren Hassinger uses a skyway as an exhibition space. Wander under the warm pink sky built by many hands, including MCAD students. The plant-based, biodegradable bags will be woven into sleeping mats and donated to help unhoused neighbors when the exhibit is over.
