For the past month or so a selection of our canvas lake maps have been on display at The Commons in downtown Excelsior. The Commons is an innovative public workspace which selects local artists to display thier art in thier beautiful space. We have chosen an assortment of metro and out-state lakes to display for the duration of the show which goes through June.
In addition to this, next week on Wednesday June 26th from 6-8 there will be a Art Reception at the space. The event will be featuring our maps as well as the work from local artist Al Whitaker who specializes in photos from Lake Minnetonka. We would love it if you could join us for this fun summer event on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Here is a small note from Lindy who is helping host the event.
The Commons is thrilled to have the opportunity to share Brad’s canvas lake maps with our community. We currently have 6 maps exhibited and the response has been so positive. I constantly find people studying one map or another and sharing ‘lake stories’ with our coworkers. Our love of lakes is something all Minnesotans have in common so this type of art has a special way of bringing people together. We’re looking forward to featuring Blueprint Maps at our upcoming art reception, ‘Lake Living’ on Wednesday, June 26 from 6pm to 8pm. -Lindy McClure
