It’s Not Too Late To Get Your ‘Posters For Parks’ Prints

Show some love for the Minneapolis Parks Foundation

Wanna get a head start on your holiday shopping? Check out the new batch of park-themed prints at the annual Posters for Parks show, a collaboration between the Minneapolis Parks Foundation and LoveMplsParks. 

Each poster is a limited-edition print of an original piece by a local artist or designer. Fifty percent of the show’s profits go toward protecting and preserving the Minneapolis park system; the other 50 percent benefits the artists.

Most of the art prints measure 18-by-24-inches, though some are designed to hang horizontally. If you see something you like, pre-order it now through Saturday, October 24. The prints are priced to move at $45 a pop; shipping costs an additional $8 or you can arrange free curbside pickup at 4800 Minnehaha Avenue on Wednesday, October 28, between 2 and 6 p.m.

Check out a few of our favorites below, including a one-color screen print from Kyle Loaney inspired by the Mighty Ducks movie (“State of Pond Hockey”); Chiny Soukhoummalay’s graphic black & white linocut, “Take a Break,” showing locals recreating around Bde Maka Ska; and Erik Krenz’s print depicting a mama and her ducklings floating down Minnehaha Creek. The artist says it was inspired by Nature magazines from the 1940s and ‘50s, but to us it looks like a classic New Yorker cover….
