The energy in the air was palpable in downtown Minneapolis yesterday. Swarms of smiling people in colorful hats, scarves and t-shirts pollenated the streets and skyways to greet the thousands of people who work and visit downtown. Why the buzz? To celebrate the launch of WeDo – the West Downtown Cultural District. As you may have discovered, it’s a place to celebrate arts, culture and everything that makes Minneapolis unique.
Special thanks to all of our amazing launch supporters that made the WeDo kick-off such a smashing success!
