The Stroll

The Stroll, penned and drawn by Andy Sturdevant, is a weekly look at the art, architecture, history, and visual culture of the Twin Cities — with each article focused on one geographic area, shown in a hand-drawn map. The Stroll draws readers' attention not only to traditional works of visual art but also to architecture, street art, historic sites, public art, advertising, artists' projects, and events on the streets and sidewalks around town.

45th parallel: Markers make note of this Minneapolis distinction

The 45th parallel is marked locally by a boulder and plaque in Theodore Wirth Park, by another boulder and plaque in Roseville, and by a sign near Medicine Lake.
