Saint Paul artist Bill Hosko captured the first rays of sun on a
wintry morning in Saint Paul’s historic Rice Park. Did you know
that Rice Park pre-dates New York’s Central Park by one year?

1st Floor—Cortile South Stair
“Letters to Landmark”
Anna was Landmark Center’s 2015 Summer Arts Discovery
resident artist and created, “Letters to Landmark.” Anna invited
everyone to share their memories and stories about this
beloved landmark in “letters” that were transferred onto
handmade porcelain envelopes, which are suspended on a
metal grid of Saint Paul. Her art recalls the building’s days as
the Post Office for the area.
Summer Arts Discovery is generously funded by the
Mardag Foundation, the F.R. Bigelow Foundation,
and the Saint Paul Cultural Star Program

“Catch A Wave”
Central Stair - 1st Landing
Perpetual Ping-Pong! This hands-on art is

“Puddle and Grass”
“Untitled: #1 #2 #3”
“Lost in Space”
Man and myth come together in this prehistoric
depiction of a horse long since gone...or did it ever
exist? After reading the exhibit story...you decide!
Polygons and parallelograms are rigid, familiar, and
conventional boundaries. Chris does not let those
conventions of conformity constrain his freedom of
St. Paul Slim
“United Front #6”
Lost in an electronic world of her own, this young
lady is oblivious to us and the world around her.
Texting, Snapchat, Instagram: it’s a whole new
universe. Life influences art.
Angela captures the special bond between brothers,
whether siblings, or ‘brothers’ in a greater community.
Family is family.
You’ll never look at a “mere” puddle the same way.
It’s an eco-system unto itself, bursting with depth
and life. Look deep into the topography of this
Unity brings hope, progress, understanding, and peace.
Slim’s work truly unites our community. Look closely:
the entire background is comprised of the signatures,
tags and messages of others.
Is it a mosaic? An essay on geometry? Eight
individual works of art? You are the beholder what do you see?
South Stair Landing
Prime numbers. Geometry. Patterns. Goldbach’s
Conjecture becomes art on canvas. Not good at
math? Not to worry. Art doesn’t ask us to “know”…
only to think and experience.
If the world is home to man and beast, then there
can be no doubt that for many creatures the
forest is, indeed, the best room in the house.
