Summit Avenue is where I spent many Saturdays in grade school painting, drawing and learning through the St. Paul Connections program. Spending time at the College of Visual Arts was so liberating. That feeling of immense inspiration took hold of me and gave me a place to develop the most beautiful work I had ever made as a fine artist. In order to encourage growth on a street with numerous "for rent" signs, I thought up a campaign that could lead Minnesotans to a place many haven't experienced. Churches, schools, and historic landmarks are concentrated enough to provide the right synergy of culture that defines St. Paul.
