We are fast approaching Tangletown Garden’s 2010 Garden and Art Tour. The tour, going on its 5th year, combines the finest gardens from homes across the Twin Cities with beautiful local artwork. Last year’s tour featured gardens primarily in the Lowry Hill and Kenwood neighborhood. I went on the tour last year and can attest that it a lot of fun and a great community building event. The self-guided tour is scheduled for Saturday, July 24th, from 9am-4pm, rain or shine. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event. The proceeds helps fund local art, charities and garden projects throughout the Twin Cities area. Check out photo albums from past tours on Tangletown Garden’s website.
For anyone who is interested in keeping Minnesota’s architectural history alive, check out the MN chapter of DOCOMOMO. It stands for the DOcumentation and COnservation of buildings and sites neighborhoods of the MOdern MOvement. This international organization promotes the study, interpretation and protection of architecture, landscape and urban design of the modern movement.
