Coming in June 2013 to Union Depot in Lowertown St Paul.
Andrew MacGuffie, Noah Keesecker and Peter Haakon Thompson are a team of artists whose work involves, respectively: sculpture; composition and multimedia art; and interactive/participatory activities in unexpected places. The artist team—two of whom work in Lowertown—has embraced the concept of Union Depot as the “Living Room of St. Paul” by combining sculpture and community game play. They will create a sculptural steel, musical, participatory ping pong table that will engage people as a source of entertainment, a tool for creating conversations and an interactive musical instrument for exploration and expression.
