Posted on 5th August, by ParkandShop

Hennepin Theatre Trust continues the 5 to 10 on Hennepin project and activates the surface parking lot at 500 Hennepin on Wednesday, August 28.

The 5 to 10 project continues to deliver family-friendly entertainment for a greater cause. Want to know more about it? According to the Hennepin Theatre Trust website:

“Strong community partnerships are key to the success of 5 to 10 on Hennepin. We worked across a wide range of sectors, integrating the diverse perspectives of local city government, social service organizations, major corporations, small businesses and cultural organizations.

Highlights of our collaborative work:

  • Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District (MDID) and Metro Transit supported our transformation of sidewalks into community spaces with more than 50 street performances and 28 days of chess along Hennepin Avenue.
  • Salvation Army’s Harbor Light Center collaborated with us and two local artists — Bianca Pettis and Erin Sayer — to create a colorful new mural on the center’s exterior walls.
  • Kulture Klub Collaborative teamed up with us to curate and present more than 30 performances on our Northern Lights Stage presented by Jack Link’s and develop an enriching arts internship for one of its youth.
  • Minneapolis MAD DADS partnered with us along with Harbor Light residents to conceptualize our mural project and establish a visible, positive presence at our monthly programs for everyone in the community to feel welcome and safe.”

You’ll find safe and inexpensive downtown Minneapolis parking at all the Park and Shop ramps. They only charge $6 after 4 pm during the week and on Saturdays (Sundays the discount applies all day.)
