Star Tribune: Artists will transform St. Paul buildings

Mural Festival

The 15 mural artists will flock to St. Paul like bats to Halloween. They come from as near as Minneapolis, and as far as Buenos Aires. All will be participating in the first-ever ChromaZone Mural & Art Festival in St. Paul’s Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ).

Over the course of eight days, the artists will create 12 large outdoor murals on the sides of the CEZ buildings. From a fishy under­water scene to towering women, the art will provide a colorful entrée into this rough and tumble industrial pocket. Craft beer offerings and food from the Little Mekong Night Market, as well as artist talks, will add to the Sept. 7-14 fest, which wraps up with a free guided bus tour of the completed murals.
