www.startseeingart.com

a semi-blog-format website dedicated to public pieces of art in Minnesota’s “Twin Cities”; Minneapolis & St. Paul, here in the U.S.A., put together by Kevin D. Hendricks & Jeffrey Martin

“Too often public art is ignored or forgotten. Sometimes you can’t even find basic details like what the work is called or who created it. The goal of Start Seeing Art is to map and identify that artwork so it can be appreciated and enjoyed.”


Where’s George?

Hjemkomst Center

blog post: 22.July.2008
in Moorhead, Minnesota, U.S.A.

it shelters a ship, Robert Asp’s ship

& is home to the Scandinavian Hjemkomst Festival in early summer, I was there three years ago, took in some food, music, etc. & still treasure a necklace & a wrap around skirt that I bought there

as far as I know, the celebrations have been held annually for over thirty years now, http://www.scandinavianhjemkomstfestival.org/


Pop vs. Soda

a contest/election of sorts going on at Kum & Go stations here in the U.S.A., in some states (Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, Colorado, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, & Arkansas)

http://www.pop-vs-soda.com/

I usually call it pop, but soda is alright too, I suppose
I was on a trans-Atlantic flight once, & asked what I would like to drink, & when I responded “pop” the server/steward said, “I’m sorry, but I don’t know what that is” *shrugs*


Where’s George?

http://www.wheresgeorge.com is a USA currency tracking project

I’ve been registering dollars on the site every once in a while for almost 3 years now, & so far my money has gone on to at least 13 states: North Dakota, South Dakota, Illinois, Minnesota, Montana, Arizona, California, New York, Georgia, Texas, Michigan, Wisconsin, & Missouri. The places I’ve intercepted marked bills from would create a different list though.
