Explore landscape change at St. Anthony Falls and our changing relationship to the land and waters through costumed History Player performances, museum exhibits, and other live programming in the museum’s main exhibit gallery (9:00-midnight) and hosted artist projects throughout the building all night. Take in a performance by costumed History Player William de la Barre, the Austrian engineer who spent half a century developing Minneapolis waterpower and milling. Watch Pare Lorentz’s documentary films The Plow That Broke the Plains and The River about 1930s environmental devastation and resulting social dislocation. View the new exhibit “Skid Row Minneapolis,” featuring the faces and places of downtown’s Gateway District in its final years. Admission to the exhibit galleries is free and open from 9:00 pm to Midnight.
Mill City Museum also will host a number of artist projects throughout the building, and its evocative outdoor spaces—the Ruin Courtyard and the Train Shed.
