Porky’s Tribute Plaza


Glass railing installation created for Episcopal Homes through partnership with the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota. Located at the corner of University Ave & Lynnhurst in Saint Paul, MN. 

DESIGN CONCEPT

Focal point for a plaza style tribute to Porky’s Drive-In which was located at the corner of Lynnhurst and University Ave until April of 2011. Episcopal Homes (who purchased Porky’s and extended their facilities on to its former location) was looking to honor the history of not only Porky’s but the car culture of the Avenue. From left to right the panels are a historic timeline of car related business and popular landmarks along the Avenue starting in the early 1900’s (left) and ending in 2011 (right).

Then & Now Minneapolis Riverfront


Collage of past and present landmarks along the Mississippi Riverfront in Minneapolis.

DESIGN CONCEPT

Based on “Greetings from Minneapolis” with the addition of a present-day aspect. The collage is located outside of a cafeteria, so the concept was to use restaurants and food related industries along with landmarks that are located along the Mississippi riverfront. Rather than focusing on the vintage imagery, I proposed a timeline-style image with a blending of old and new. 

PROJECT DETAILS

Printed on canvas and measure 3′ x 12′.

Completed 2010.
