MN Billboard Project 2021

MN Billboard Project 2021

In 2019 we focused on reproductive rights and selected local artists to create pro-choice designs. In 2020, for the presidential and local elections, we focused on voter engagement for under-represented communities. In 2021 we are giving artists an opportunity to create designs based on topics present for them.

We’ve reserved two billboards in close proximity to the Minnesota Fairgrounds for display early August through Labor Day 2021 to be viewable during The Great Minnesota Get Together. Nearly 2 million people attend the Minnesota State Fair every year! People from all walks of life throughout the state attend the fair, and this gives our designs a chance to be seen by even more people.

Want to help support our project but don’t have a lot of cash? The majority of our funding comes from small donations and grassroots fundraising. A few bucks makes a big difference! We also greatly appreciate likes & shares to our Facebook  and Instagram  accounts.

This year’s artists include:

Destiny A. Davison (she/her/they/them)This year’s contribution is titled “Pathway to Change” and will be released for virtual viewing on July 9. Destiny is a writer, illustrator, cartoonist and multi-media maker from the Midwest. Her work explores the real, the unreal, and the in-between. Find more of Destiny’s work at Destiny A Davison Website, Instagram , Facebook , and Twitter.

Noah Lawrence-Holder (they/them) collaborating with Petra Lee (she/they). This year’s contribution is titled “Black Asian Solidarity/Fundamental Change” and will be released for virtual viewing on July 16. Noah is a black, nonbinary artist from Madison WI, now based in the Twin Cities. Their work consists of illustration and animations centered around racial justice, equity, intersectionality and gender identity. They have featured work in gallery shows highlighting queer and black artists across Minneapolis and beyond.  Find more of Noah’s work at Noah Lawrence Holder Website  and Instagram. Petra Lee’s work focuses on the intersections of person, time and place, and opens conversations about history, culture, memory and displacement. She was born and raised in Singapore before moving to Vietnam and subsequently the United States, where she trained as a fine artist and graphic designer in Minneapolis, MN. She has since shown her work in both solo and group exhibitions locally and across the US. Find more of Petra's work at Petra Lee Website and Instagram.

A portion of our proceeds from this fundraiser are also donated to support The Link . As always, artists are given creative freedom on their designs and compensated for their work. We’re a queer led project and, with the exception of artists, our team is volunteer run.
