  • Xcel Energy Plaza Minneapolis, MN (map)

The Cycling Museum of Minnesota is excited to be participating in Northern Spark this year by presenting SPOKEn Word - Cycles Speak by artists, Matthew Tyler Ramírez & Breezy Callens. With additional creative support from Laura Moran & Logan O'Neill.

Join us in this interactive poetry artwork while learning about bicycles and other cycles from the 19th Century to the 21st Century.

Witness how our paths cross, intersect, repeat, and cycle as we all traverse these cities going to work, seeing family, hanging out with friends, and simply enjoying being outside – through the power of SPOKEn word poetry.

There will be 6 cycles from our the museum highlighted including: 1968 Schwinn Breeze, 1930s Fairy Bike Tricycle, 1978 Raleigh Carleton Competition GS, 1983 Mercian Super Tourist Tandem, 1977 Schwinn Giraffe (unicycle), and 1883 Rudge High Wheel. 

See you at Northern Spark! We will be located on Nicollet Mall on Xcel Energy Plaza, which is at the corner of Nicollet and 5th Street of Downtown Minneapolis.

Northern Spark 2018 is a free, late-night art festival exploring questions of commonality in 3 venues in Downtown Minneapolis from 9 pm - 2 am on June 15 & 16, 2018.
