Free arts event on Hennepin Avenue

Minneapolis MOSIAC, a summer-long celebration of the city’s diverse arts and cultures, kicks off Saturday evening when performances and arts exhibitions take over Hennepin Avenue between 7th and 9th streets 6 p.m.–10p.m.

The free opening night event, “Many Worlds. One Night,” also features the premiere of the locally produced original film “In the Garden” at the State Theater. Sponsored by Best Buy, the film features residents from different cultural backgrounds experiencing Minneapolis landmarks.

More than 40 music, theater and dance performances and fine art exhibitions will appear on multiple stages on Hennepin Avenue and in the State, Pantages and Hennepin Stages theaters. There will be other exhibits and activities on the street, as well as food from Midtown Global Market vendors.
