Crosstown images featured at Edina City Hall
Twelve year-end award-winning images from 2014 and 2015 by Crosstown members are now being featured through October of next year in the Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St, Edina, MN 55424. The photos are available for viewing in the Community Room during regular business hours (but best over the noon hour when the room is less prone to be in use). Enter city hall, walk up the stairs and head straight back to find the Community Room. Special thanks for Crosstown members Cynthia Fleury, Ray Klempka and John Olson for coordinating the framing and hanging of the exhibit, and to Edina Art Center Director Michael Frey for providing image wall tags.
