As part of Hennepin Theatre Trust's Made Here Cultural District window display a new artwork has been created at the Witt Mitchell Building at 705 Hennepin Avenue. Local artists Tim Carroll, Daisy Lysne, Ursula Simmer and FAIR Downtown School student Calvin Haferman have created a 3D sculpture using recycled materials. The work was inspired by the musical Peter and the Starcatcher.
