Metamorphosis is a participatory installation by artist, Angela Two Stars and in collaboration with Pangea World Theater, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, and Longfellow Rising as part of Public Arts St. Paul's Wakpa Triennial Art Festival.
Come, join in community healing, and create your own butterfly designs to add to this art on July 22nd and August 19th, celebrate with us on September 9th.
Metamorphosis grows from The Transition Stage (2021), a temporary community cocoon installation, which served as a vessel for community laments, hopes, dreams, and mottos of strength as the Longfellow neighborhood and the city of Minneapolis moved towards growth, redevelopment and healing after the 2020 murder of George Floyd and subsequent uprisings that caused destruction and devastation to the Longfellow neighborhood.
Metamorphosis is a two-sided mural. One side features the written contributions from The Transition Stage chrysalis installation, a reminder of the losses experienced after the uprisings of 2020, but also a reminder of the resilience and hope of the Longfellow neighborhood and how together, we can rebuild. The other side of the artwork is a butterfly scene — the representation of the transformation, rebuilding, and strength of the community.
