UROC
(Location 20 on the Map)
features work from 3 Northside Artists.
8am-8pm (2001 Plymouth Ave N.)
In Gallery One
Nikki McComb's  "The Moving Walls of Minneapolis"
Art is My Weapon founder Nikki McComb uses data exploring evictions in North Minneapolis as the guide for "The Moving Walls of Minneapolis."  Part installation, part visual story, this exhibit, produced in partnership with the University of Minnesota Center for Urban and Regional Affairs, brings a deeply personal local perspective to our country’s affordable housing crisis. 
In Gallery Two  
Keegan Xavi's "She'll Swallow Us Whole."   
Talented collage artist Keegan Xavi presents a collection of works exploring  identity, form, gender and blackness. The work is calming and frightful as the eye dissects the individual elements that make the forms. The mind begins to understand the complicated intersection between the many identities we inhabit in any waking moment. 
Also In The Building 
"MAMAS GET READY"

UROC Artist-in Residence, Amoke Kubat and her Yo Mama's House Cooperative bring the topic of disaster preparedness to the forefront of her work. Kubat presents three free activities to help Northside families prepare for disaster. Supplies are limited. First come first served.
