see Northeast for the first time or with new eyes
Saturday, September 28th 2012
1318 Marshall st NE
Field Trip Day is dedicated to the art of the wander. Come and see Northeast for the first time or with new eyes: for on this one day she will reveal herself through over 30 quirky, historic, artsy and just plain odd destinations.
Meander with us through one of the oldest and most beloved neighborhoods in the city. Explore the labyrinthian confines of sprawling artist studios, happen upon tiny secret doorways, bask in the glow of gilded religious iconography, see enormous puppets come to life, or play bocce ball a-top a mass grave -- Northeast Minneapolis is your oyster. Together we'll find hidden places, discover secret histories, and unearth the unusual.
There are no right choices, no wrong turns - but there are treasures to be uncovered just out of sight.
Details after the jump
Be sure to bring your smartphone, and we suggest you bring a bicycle or car as the hidden wonders expand out into the far corners and nether regions of the expansive Northeast neighborhood. You’ll meander, discovering hidden wonders all afternoon and then once you've explored to your heart's content, you'll return to Dusty's for the after party, where PBR and tunes will abound. If you aren't over-stimulated by the end of it all, follow us over to the secret after-after party at Creative Ironwerks, where live music and shadow puppetry will round it all out.
WHEN: Saturday, September 29, 2pm-8pm
Check in between 2-2:30 pm outside Dusty's Bar (1319 Marshall St. NE) to pick up some swag and get the app!
WHO: Just like in grade school, Field Trips are best with buddies - so grab your friends and sign up as a team.
Bikes are recommended for maximum ground coverage
Your RSVP printout, smartphone, water and your friends.
WHAT TO EXPECT:A whirlwind of weird! Our off-the-radar tour of Northeast Minneapolis will bring you into secret spaces, flickering art worlds, abandoned theaters, art houses, lego wonderlands, and oh-so-much more.
Don't fear the elf, there is always PBR at the end of the tunnel.
This is not a tour. There is no guide. It is discovery, pure & simple.
