A new mural is coming to South Loop. Ua Si Creative, a collective which promotes community through arts, culture and diversity, is working as the curator and producer of a new South Loop Mural. The undertaking is a group effort led by Creative Placemaking in partnership with Artistry. When complete, the 752-foot mural will be the longest in Minnesota.
Ua Si Creative team members Christina Vang, Teeko Yang and Ka Oskar Ly, pictured above, selected artists Marlena Myles, Martzia Thometz, Reggie LeFlore, Xee Reiter and Andre Guzman, and City Mischief to complete a portion of the mural. A theme, focused on the meaning of the acronym WE, will unite each mural piece to the others in hopes to better connect Bloomington.
Selected artists will use a combination of outdoor paint and spray paint to complete their creations. The mural will be located on two walls surrounding an Xcel Energy substation at the corner of American Boulevard and 30th Avenue South.
Installation of the mural will take place this summer and cap off with a Sunset Block Party on Saturday, September 18. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit or call 952-563-8744.
