Union Table at Union Depot in Lowertown St Paul is a multi-use Ping Pong table that acts as a place for entertainment, a tool for creating conversations and an interactive musical instrument for exploration and expression.
Play anytime at Union Depot in Lowertown St Paul. Balls and paddles are free to use and can be found on shelves under the table.
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 have created a sculptural steel, sound producing, participatory ping pong table that will engage people as a source of entertainment, a tool for creating conversations and an interactive instrument for exploration and expression.
