Altitude: Community Art Unveiling

Join us on Tuesday, December 7th at 11:30 a.m. as St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter unveils ‘Altitude’ – an interactive and vibrant sculpture that will be on display at YWCA St. Paul through 2022.

This is an outdoor event. Hot chocolate and coffee will be available for free.

WHERE: In the parking lot next to YWCA St. Paul (375 Selby Avenue, St. Paul). You can also watch the unveiling virtually on Facebook Live on our page: www.facebook.com/YWCAStPaul.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK: The city of St. Paul and Mayor Melvin Carter partnered with Springboard for the Arts to commission this piece which celebrates the work of the city’s People’s Prosperity Pilot, a guaranteed income pilot program launched last year. Dr. Nicole Milligan and the Milligan Studio created the featured sculpture ‘Altitude,’ a joyous celebration crafted with glass, metal, and sound. It was inspired by the dreams of children and a tight-rope walker’s parasol. ‘Altitude’ will be hung from the second-floor window of YWCA St. Paul for the community to enjoy.
