“For the past few weeks, a big, bright mural with (multiple Bob Dylans on it) has been going up in downtown Minneapolis on Hennepin Avenue and 5th Street South — it was completed today.
A team of artists from Brazil, led by well-known painter Eduardo Kobra, have been working on a colorful tribute to the legendary Minnesota-born artist. They also enlisted two local muralists, Erin Sayer and Yuya Negishi, to help transform the side of this five-story building into a work of art that is likely to become a local landmark.
Photographer and Midwestival friend Jill Emmer (who you may know as @shineonyoucraydiamond on Instagram) happens to be pals with Erin Sayer and was invited to attend the signing of the mural earlier today. The occasion doubled as a send-off for the Brazilian artists as they headed out to the airport shortly after these photos were taken.”
