Tornado volunteers will be recognized at the FLOW Northside Arts Crawl event

The upcoming FLOW Northside Arts Crawl will feature a short ceremony to recognize the 6,000+ volunteers who were part of the massive clean-up of north Minneapolis in the weeks following the May 22 tornado.

Everyone who helped with the clean-up is invited to come to the Fire ‘n Ice parking lot, 2220 West Broadway, at 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 30 to assemble for the brief ceremony that will be held from 5 – 6 p.m. at Penn & Broadway. A large-scale group photo of the volunteers who have helped with tornado clean-up will be taken and exhibited in the community. The photo is intended to be a living mosaic of neighbors, community members, volunteers and organizations that came together in response to the tornado’s destruction.

The FLOW Northside Arts Crawl, set for Saturday, July 30 from 3 - 8 p.m., is an annual free, family event that showcases artists of all ages from the north Minneapolis community. FLOW is a self-guided art tour featuring visual and performing artists showing at businesses, studios and organizations along West Broadway in north Minneapolis.
