In the summer and fall of 2000, Lake Street, a major Minneapolis urban thoroughfare, was transformed into one of the largest public art exhibits. Photographer Wing Young Huie's 675 b&w images, ranging in size from 8 by 10 inches to 8 by 12 feet, were displayed along six miles in store windows, transit stops, and billboards. The images reflect the mixture of socioeconomic, ethnic, and cultural realities of the neighborhoods connected by Lake Street. Many of the photographs presented here are accompanied by excerpts from interviews with the subjects. The photographer was named Artist of the Year for 2000 by the Minneapolis Star Tribune for his work on the Lake Street project. Material is presented in a horizontal format, 10x8. Annotation c.

Woman of the Boundary Waters
Canoeing, Guiding, Mushing, and Surviving
Paperback ISBN: 0816624437
The Boundary Waters region of Minnesota and Ontario is a vast wilderness of quiet beauty, visited and loved by many, but home to only a rugged few. In 1928, Justine Kerfoot arrived, a Northwestern University graduate headed for medical school until her family lost both their Illinois homes in the stock market crash. Thrust into year-round life at her mother's fledgling summer resort, Justine was confronted with learning survival in the frigid north woods, a challenge she met with extraordinary verve and recounts with great candor and humor in this remarkable book. Kerfoot has paddled all the lakes and streams in this border country, and she knows them well. Her lyrical descriptions of wildlife and seasonal environments express the deep reverence for nature that has become her way of life. In a new afterword, she reflects on the impact of restricted wilderness status on the region - called the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness since 1978 - and on her own convictions about people living in the wild.
