During the 17th annual Art Attack at the Northrup King Building, 250 visual artists will open their galleries and studios to the public. Working out of over 150 separate studios – people will have a chance to view and purchase original art in nearly every medium. ( ).

We are pleased to announce that the Northrup King Building is collaborating with TPT’s MN Original on Saturday, November 8th to bring even more art engagement to Art Attack 2014.
MN Original will present a gallery of visual artists, musicians and participatory activities. International recording artist and soul singer Timotha Lane will be performing 3 sets between 1:00-3:00 on Saturday. Revolver Magazine hosts its writing game “Equisite Corpse”. Participants will receive general information to create a detective story. Using a typewriter and paper, each participant writes a sentence to the story only able to see the line immediately preceeding it. The results of the full story will be read Saturday evening at 6:45 pm.

Throughout the weekend:

Friday evening, Nighttime Post, presented by Erin Lavelle and Anthony Chapin, will be hand-delivering messages from citizen to unknown citizen, illuminating the bond between strangers.

John Ebert presents Determination – a map of the United States made strictly out of U.S. pennies (about 24,000 of them)! This insanely massive and unique piece of art work will be displayed throughout the weekend in Hedberg Maps studio space – studio 314.

Tom Combs is a recently retired physician with over 20 years experience in the ERs of Level 1 trauma hospitals including HCMC and North Memorial. He is author of the Twin Cities-based medical suspense/thriller NERVE DAMAGE. Action centers around the ER of “Hennepin-North” hospital and explodes across the metro as renegade agents of the trillion-dollar pharmaceutical industry place a young ER doctor and his family in deadly peril.The story pulses with high level intrigue, greed, violence and authentic life-or-death medical action. It is a tale of heart-pounding thrills, brilliant twists and gut-clenching emotion. Combs will have copies for of NERVE DAMAGE for sale and can discuss writing, the process of developing and executing cover art, and Twin Cities’ instructional writing resources.
