Enjoy three days of art and culture along Payne Avenue and Swede Hollow Park Sept 23-25.
Solidarity Street Gallery brings together artists, performers, poets, entrepreneurs, civic leaders, and the local community to celebrate and appreciate the multitude of cultural, racial, and ethnic communities who call the Eastside home. This year’s intentional focus on the Native community is possible through partnership with Oyate Hotanin (“Voice of the People”) who will collaborate on a large-scale art installation, performances, and curating gallery exhibits. The festival will highlight Native sacred sites, history, and traditions, as well as explore modern culture and identity of Dakota and other local Native people.
On Saturday, Sept 25 the annual Harvest Festival Parade along Payne Avenue will end at Swede Hollow Park, bringing festival goers into the park’s hidden forest to enjoy Art in the Hollow, presented by the Friends of Swede Hollow. Music and dance performances and more than 25 visual artists take you away from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can even bring your own canvas and paint to capture this treasured natural area!
