Now Intermedia, known for its community involvement and outreach to all demographics, can expand on that initial effort, because the Kresge Foundation has given them $ 1 million to do just that over the next three years.
Intermedia will help to select local artists to work with up to five city departments, said Theresa Sweetland, executive and artistic director of Intermedia Arts. Both current mayor Betsy Hodges and former mayor R.T. Rybak were on hand at an early afternoon gathering at Intermedia's space on Lyndale Ave. S to announce the news.
Results of the 2013 pilot program are on display in an exhibit called "This Is Our City!" at Intermedia through March 8.
