Publisher's Comments

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.
