The Ramsey County Historical Society (RCHS) is asking community members to use their creativity and skills to document the opening of the Green Line Light Rail on June 14, 2014.

Tell a story, capture the moment, and preserve your experiences in the media of your choice.

Participants do not need to be professional artists, photographers or writers, and the choice of how to present your experience is up to you! Some examples to get you started:

          Record the sounds of the celebration and put them to your own music composition.
          Photograph an event at a Green Line stop.
          Talk to community members and residents and create a story around their words.
          Keep a journal of the day.
          Film a part of the celebration.
          Paint, draw, collage, or print your impressions.
          Create a dance that embodies the feeling of the day and film it.

Important information:
          For information about the Green Line Opening Celebration see: www.metrotransit.org/greenline

          The works created will be exhibited in the RCHS Exhibit Gallery, at the north end of the Landmark Center, June 18-December 27, 2015.

          The exhibition will be juried from digital submissions. Details on how to submit and information about the exhibit will be posted soon on our website.

          Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place in the exhibition and exhibition participants will receive a free one-year membership to RCHS.

Entry guidelines are available as a pdf here.
You may also contact
membership@rchs.com or call 651-222-0701 to receive entry guidelines.

RCHS will also be looking for annual updates along the Green Line, its impacts and the changes it will spark in Central Corridor neighborhoods. Participants are encouraged to revisit the scenes of their work and document those changes for history.

Created by Ramsey County Historical Society and Guest Curator, Frank White, this exhibit tells the story of Twin Cities baseball players through extensive research and interviews with local players and their families.  The exhibit premiered in the Ramsey County Historical Society Gallery in the Landmark Center in 2010, and has been updated many times as continuing research uncovers more details and personal stories.
