Off-Ramp Art: Minneapolis

Hidden behind weeds on a dangerously busy stretch of off-ramp from Interstate 94 in Minneapolis' Wedge neighborhood, I spotted this piece, a subtle paint-on-newspaper work wheat-pasted to a concrete retaining wall. Given its placement--hidden from speeding cars but close to the stoplights where panhandlers hold their signs--the quiet work feels like a gift, overlooked by all but the most observant or the very lucky.
