The University Avenue Project Volume 1: The Language of Urbanism: A Six-Mile Photographic Inquiry

The University Avenue Project Volume 1: The Language of Urbanism: A Six-Mile Photographic Inquiry

Acclaimed photographer Wing Young Huie explores the complex cultural and socioeconomic diversity of the St. Paul neighborhoods along University Avenue. This urban corridor connects a burgeoning condominium community, mom and pop stores, big-box retailers, schools, and family homes. At one public school alone, students have emigrated from sixty-six countries. These colliding cultures reflect the gamut of the evolving American experience, from old world to developing world to the modern world.

The University Avenue Project not only collects Wing Young Huie's stunning photography but also provides the stories behind the photos in the residents' own words and a behind-the-scenes look at the complexities of staging this nationally significant exhibit. Volume 2 will document the reactions to and interactions with the exhibit and will be available in August.
