A collaboration of five artists from five countries has won the Creative City Challenge 2018 commission—congratulations to Preston Drum ’16, MFA; Peng Wu ’13, MFA; Aki Shibata; and MFA students Shunjie Yong and Zoe Cinel.

CarryOn Homes is a multifunctional pavilion hosting stories of immigrants in Minnesota, where individuals come together to explore the concept of home through community gatherings, workshops, live performances, and personal reflection. This interactive sculptural installation reimagines the home as an open structure. Walls disappear, while invitations to engage appear in the multiple forms of a stage, a colorful mural, a reflecting garden, a photo gallery, and a sculpture built from repurposed suitcases. 

Head to the Commons park in downtown Minneapolis to join in this celebration of immigrant cultures from around the world that have come to call Minnesota home.

CarryOn Homes
The Commons Park, Minneapolis 
Installation Debut: Friday, June 15, 9:00 p.m.

The Creative City Challenge is a competition for Minnesota-resident architects, landscape architects, urban designers, planners, engineers, scientists, artists, students, and individuals of all backgrounds. This project was made possible by the City of Minneapolis’ Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy program in association with Northern Lights.MN and the Commons.
