Facing The Fire


1 live animated projection performance with Queen Drea at the Hook & Ladder alleyway next to the former 3rd Precinct Building, 3010 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55406

Facing the Fire is a public art project devised by long time Howe resident and projection artist, Paul Herwig, and consists of performances of live animated projection art, and live and recorded music, featuring Queen Drea, taking place at locations along East Lake Street east of Hiawatha Avenue.

The artists are responding to the civil unrest of summer 2020, which resulted from the murder of George Floyd, and repeated police abuses in this community and across the country, A public questionnaire was also made available, to which residents responded with notes about their first-hand experiences.

The artists aim to amplify the voices of the residents of the greater Longfellow neighborhood, and temporarily transform the scarred physical properties of the area into hauntingly beautiful and temporary artistic installations that poetically evoke the experiences of that summer, and resonate with the aspirations of the community today.
