Northern Spark at Rondo Community Library

Northern Spark is a two-night, free public art festival exploring the theme of We Are Here: Resilience, Renewal, and Regeneration. This year, one of the focus areas for Northern Spark is the Rondo neighborhood of Saint Paul

SAINT PAUL, MN – Rondo Community Library, 461 N Dale Street, Saint Paul, will be a satellite site for Northern Spark, a late night art festival that lights up the Twin Cities, on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15, from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Library After Dark events at Rondo Community Library include a community fashion parade, community quilt-making, arts & crafts featuring glow-in-the-dark painting, and a chance to meet the artists currently working on re-energizing the façade of the library with input from the community.
There are many ways to be involved in the community quilt project. People are invited to bring in their own 6” x 6” panel to add to the quilt, or they can make them on-site or help sew squares together.
The community fashion shows, happening both evenings at 10 p.m. and again at midnight, are open to anyone who wants to show off their sense of creative style with outfits they pulled together or clothing they’ve designed. This is for people who simply enjoy having fun with clothes as well as for more serious fashion designers.
The Library After Dark events at Rondo Community Library will be connected to the Northern Spark events at Hallie Q. Brown Community Center by free bus shuttle, sponsored by Minnesota Historical Society. This shuttle will also run neighborhood tours led by community elders.
