From 6 pm to 8 pm

The Art of Food in Frogtown & Rondo, a coalition that Public Art Saint Paul is a part of and whose mission is to creatively cultivate the development of a strong community food system, will be hosting an artist convening later this month!

We believe artists are an essential part of creating a vibrant healthy community. Thus, through this planning conversation, we are interested in learning from you as artists about how and where art can play a role in helping strengthen the local food system. We will convene in a large group and small group discussions. This feedback will then be implemented into the planning of the Art of Food Coalition in Frogtown and Rondo. It could potentially lead to future projects.

We are looking to identify and invite up to 25 artists/creatives of all types who live, work, or have any meaningful connection with the Frogtown or Rondo community to join us for a brainstorming conversation over a delicious meal prepared by Community Chef Peter Vang.

Each participating artist will receive $50 for their time at this convening.

To reserve a seat, please contact Mayumi Park at or 651-290-0921.
In your email please identify a very brief statement of your artist practice and your ties to Rondo or Frogtown (live, work, play+).

Space is very limited, so reach out now!

Please share this with your network of creatives who have ties to the Frogtown or Rondo community!
