River Futures

April 16, 2014, 4:00-8:00pm
Northrop – Best Buy Theater

river futuresStudents from all disciplines were invited to imagine the future of the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities and to create a work that responds to that imagined future. How will people gain access to the water? What wildlife will inhabit this corridor in the city? How will the region’s long history be evident? These are just examples of the questions students are asking about this place. Projects will take the form of a proposed research project, work of art (visual art, music, performance, etc.), audio/visual media, or other means of expression. A panel of judges (faculty, staff, and community partners) have reviewed all proposals and selected a number for further development. Students whose proposals were selected have worked in conjunction with faculty or community partners to complete their unique works, which will be presented during the grand re-opening celebration at Northrop on April 16th.

Organized by the University Honors Program and the River Life Program.
