Urban Collection Gallery Opening at Motto Boutique

Have you had the chance to stop by Motto Boutique in Minneapolis’ Uptown neighborhood? Not only does the lifestyle boutique carry chic, one-of-a-kind fashion, but the store also sells home furnishings and accessories. This Wednesday, October 10th is a perfect opportunity to stop by and see the beautiful merchandise for yourselves. Shop owners Maria Walker and Maryn Bulygo are hosting Urban Collection, an art gallery opening from 5-8:30pm, featuring collected work from emerging artists for over the last 20+ years on sale at prices below their usual value. Most artists have since “emerged” including Shannon Kennedy, Christian Holstad, Peter Houser, Erinestine Ruben, & Ramon Muxter to name a few. The collection also includes several local MCAD grads and locals like Sarah Wooster, Matt Franzen & Jennifer Davis.

Be sure to stop by! Motto Boutique is located at 3105 Hennepin Ave South, Minneapolis. There will also be plenty of treats and refreshments served at the opening. See you there!
