. “As I wander the neighborhood with my children, wife and dog, I can’t help noticing the beauty of poison ivy. It’s abundant leaves and hyperbolically furry vines are everywhere. It glows red in autumn.These realizations are paired with a sense of foreboding, as poison ivy proliferates with global warming. The peril of this hairy harbinger reverberates in its poisonous oil and metaphorical itchiness.”

Rondo Neighborhood (Lexington Pkwy)
Historic #Rondo Neighborhood, served in part by the Lexington Avenue light-rail stop, is part of the Summit/University area of Saint Paul. Home to a large and thriving African-American community of homeowners, business leaders, and culture-makers that centered around Rondo Avenue in the 1930s, the neighborhood was largely destroyed by construction of I-94 in the 1960s. Today the spirit of Rondo is carried forward through the Rondo Arts, Cultural, & Business Heritage District (RACBHD), Roots of Rondo Black Artists Rising and Black Excellence programs, Rondo Days and Selby Jazz Festival celebrations, the Rondo Commemorative Plaza opening in July 2017, and the creation of the first St. Paul African American Historical Cultural Context Study.
Northern Spark art projects in Rondo will engage the rich history of Black creativity in the neighborhood and make connections to climate justice through a variety of art forms. Northern Spark’s neighborhood partner is Aurora St. Anthony Neighborhood Community Development Corporation, with participation from High School for Recording Arts.

Northern Spark takes place on June 10th, 2017. From sunset to sunrise, artist-led and community-driven projects will flourish in neighborhoods along the Metro Transit Green Line.

Little Mekong District (Western):
#LittleMekong is the Asian business and cultural district in St. Paul served by the Western Avenue light rail stop. Located between Mackubin and Galtier streets along University Avenue, the district boasts a diversity of cultures, top-rated restaurants and unique shopping experiences. The neighborhoods around Little Mekong include Frogtown and Summit-University. Visitors come to Little Mekong to experience the unique culture and flavors of Southeast Asia. Northern Spark’s neighborhood partner is Asian Economic Development Association (AEDA), known for the Little Mekong Night Market, an annual event that will take place on the same night as Northern Spark this year.
.
.

This year’s Little Mekong Night Market has a thematic focus on water, and Northern Spark projects will carry this theme. Water is seen as a connector, connecting multiple Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Water is sacred to many of these cultures, but can also remind other Southeast Asian communities of struggle and war.

It’s here. It’s happening along the METRO Green Line. June 10th 2017. #NorthernSpark Official Facebook event:

https://www.facebook.com/events/422327228101530/

Those who love the most,
Do not talk of their love,
Francesca, Guinevere,
Deirdre, Iseult, Heloise,
In the fragrant gardens of heaven
Are silent, or speak if at all
Of fragile inconsequent things.

And a woman I used to know
Who loved one man from her youth,
Against the strength of the fates
Fighting in somber pride
Never spoke of this thing,
But hearing his name by chance,
A light would pass over her face.

Those Who Love by Sara Teasdale (1884-1933)
