    Cardi B has volunteered to pay for the burial costs of the 17 people who were killed in a deadly fire that destroyed a New York City high-rise building earlier this month.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced Wednesday that the Grammy-winning rapper had offered financial relief for victims of the fire. The rapper grew up in the Bronx and holds a special connection to the area.  Many of the victims had ties to Gambia, and the families of several of the victims planned to bury them in their West African homeland.

    PARIS -- April 15, 2022, marks three years since Parisians and tourists watched in horror as a massive fire engulfed the iconic centuries-old Notre Dame Cathedral.After more than two years of rescue and removal, the restoration is finally beginning. National Geographic is the only foreign media outlet given high-level access to the rebuild and captured this seismic effort with drone footage and photographs."A doctrine of historical restoration is that you rebuild things to the last documented state," said Robert Kunzig, senior environment editor at National Geographic magazine.It took more than two years after the fire just to remove the burnt timbers and other debris and to shore up the vaults and buttresses against a catastrophic collapse. Tomas Van Houtryve/National Geographic Kunzig, who spent months reporting on the rebuild, said architects are restoring the church exactly as Eugène-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc left it. In 1831, Viollet-le-Duc watched as a mob attacked Notre Dome, which was fortunately spared from the angry crowd's fire. Thirteen years later, he directed its first restoration, preserving the landmark for the world.This, however, means modern-day architects must...
    A short but sweet service announcement: The White House can now place an order via USPS for four free at-home rapid COVID-19 tests to be sent to your home. You can place an order here or directly from USPS here. The order system is currently in beta testing by the Biden administration. Each household can only place one order, so if there are more than four people in your house, you are out of luck on additional free tests.  Orders are expected to begin shipping in late January. If you live in apartment building and the system only recognizes the first order from that address, stay tuned because the White House is aware and working to fix that glitch. xYes, working with @WhiteHouse to ensure multiple units in the same ONE apartment building, non English speakers and those without internet access will be able to receive tests as well.

    Four civilians and at least three police officers were injured when a three-story home collapsed in a gas explosion fire in the Bronx on Tuesday morning - just one week after another massive blaze killed 17 people in Bronx apartment building three miles away. More than 100 firefighters and EMS personnel responded to reports of a gas explosion and two-alarm fire on Intervale Avenue in the Longwood section of the Bronx in New York City, at around 11am. Crews were seen desperately trying to get the blaze under control before the three-story home collapsed.   At least seven people have been injured in the fire, and were taken to the hospital. CBS 2 News reports that one of the injuries is serious, while the other two victims are expected to recover.

    Amateur astronomers may be able to catch a glimpse of an asteroid twice the size of the Empire State Building when passes Earth at 43,000 miles per hour tonight.  The asteroid, known as 7482 (1994 PC1), will make its closest approach to our planet at 21:51 GMT (16:51 EST) on Tuesday.  It is estimated to be 3,451 feet (1.052km) in diameter, much larger than the tallest building on earth, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which measures 2,722 feet.  Asteroid 7482 (1994 PC1) will safely pass within 1.2 million miles of Earth — around five times farther away from the planet than the moon. Tonight marks the closest the asteroid has been to our planet since 1933, when it was 699,000 miles away. While 7482 (1994 PC1) is unlikely to be visible with the naked eye tonight, amateur astronomers may be able to see it in the constellation Pisces using a small backyard telescope, according to EarthSky. After its close approach on Tuesday, 7482 (1994 PC1) won't be this close to Earth again until the year 2105, according to NASA JPL-Caltech's Solar System Dynamics. ...
    DEAR HARRIETTE: I started a new job, and I am having a bit of difficulty acclimating to working remotely in this new position. Harriette Cole  For starters, my company is midsized, but it seems huge when I am meeting people via Zoom. It is hard to remember who is who and to build a rapport with people when everything is formal and distant. I was thinking it could be a good idea to organize a virtual cocktail hour after work one day to get to know each other. I don’t want to be presumptuous, though, as the “new kid.” How should I handle this? Social Organizer DEAR SOCIAL ORGANIZER: I like your idea. Take it to your boss and inquire as to whether they like it, too — as a team event. It could play out in different ways. Inviting the whole team that you work with directly could work, or perhaps a subset. If you choose a small group and build from there, you may not even need to involve your boss. The other thing you can do is...
    New York (CNN)When the 19-story Twin Parks North West building in the Bronx turned into a deathtrap one week ago, nearly all of the 17 people who perished -- including eight children -- were immigrants from Gambia and other West African countries."They were our aunts and uncles and others who were coming to our food pantry since the pandemic," said Ajifanta Marenah, secretary of the Gambian Youth Organization, just blocks from the site of last Sunday's fire. "This is a community of people who have to work two or three jobs to make ends meet."New York firefighters battled a smoky fire in 1986 at the same Bronx building where 17 were killed this weekFor over a century, the worst fires in New York City history have claimed the lives of immigrants. Sunday's fire was the city's deadliest since 1990, when arson at an unlicensed Bronx nightclub killed 87 people, mostly Honduran and Central American immigrants. The Happy Land Social Club inferno -- about a mile from the Twin Parks North West building -- was the deadliest in the city since...

    LOUISVILLE, Colo. (CBS4) – Just weeks after the Centura-Avista Adventist Hospital came within feet of possibly catching fire during the Marshall Fire, staff are hard at work to prepare the facility to reopen to patients. The hospital, which is surrounded by devastated neighborhoods, somehow survived the historic blaze without any structural damage. (credit: Avista Adventist Hospital) Dozens of patients had to be evacuated to sister hospitals the night the Marshall Fire erupted. Hospital CEO Isaac Sendros said the evacuation was something the staff had prepared for, yet never expected to execute. “A full evacuation? No, that is not something you look forward to doing,” Sendros said. “As you can imagine it was a stressful moment. But, we have been running drills for this.” Heroic staff members inside the hospital worked to get patients loaded into ambulances and rushed to neighboring hospitals. All the while the flames were creeping closer and closer to the hospital, at one point becoming a threat of a possible explosion. (credit: CBS) “The oxygen tanks were a big concern. We actually had to evacuate patients that...
    The founder of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group and 10 others have been arrested and charged with seditious conspiracy for allegedly organizing the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the extremist group, was taken into custody by federal officials on Thursday, after a grand jury returned indictments against him and a core group of Oath Keeper members, accusing them of planning and carrying out the insurrection to stop the certification of President Joe Biden's election victory.

    People around the world are always looking for new ways to combat the climate crisis. But homeowners, businesses, and buildings developers should look no further than the roof above them. Whether green, blue, or white, each has its own unique environmental benefit. Read on to see which roof may best suit your building or community. Green Likely the most trendy, the “green roof” is a different term for a rooftop garden. They serve a range of purposes — aesthetically and environmentally — including carbon-dioxide absorption, air filtration, and building insulation. Green roofs can also act as a mini-ecosystem, serving as a habitat for insects, butterflies, bees, and birds. In the U.S., Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, and New York City are among the major cities that require or incentivize green roofs. White White roofs are beneficial to global warming because they substantially reduce heat. Reflecting up to 85% of the sunlight that hits them, white roofs keep building coolers and save energy that would otherwise be used for air conditioning. Additionally, they don’t warm the air above them...
    Rock star Ed Sheeran wants to be buried in a church he’s building at the bottom of his garden. The Shape of You singer is creating a place of worship with a tower, pews and stained-glass windows at his Suffolk country estate. 3The architect's CGI of Ed's new place of worship Planners gave the idea the thumbs up in 2019 and Ed has just submitted amended plans to the local council that reveal the structure will have a burial chamber. The crypt will be constructed under the knave of the church and will be accessed via a stone slab. Drawings sent to East Suffolk District Council last month show that the chamber will be 2.7m long by 1.8m wide. The plans add: “Burial zone beneath (penetration through slab).” Ed’s church will contain eight pews, an altar, an upstairs gallery and a stair turret with access to the tower. Donald Insall Associates, the agents for the project, said of the church in previously submitted documents: "It would address an important need for a private place of retreat for contemplation and prayer,...
    (CNN)Watching the news footage of the fatal fire that spread through a New York apartment block Sunday, I was transported back in time to another fire that four years ago changed my life forever.On June 14, 2017, I watched as flames engulfed Grenfell Tower -- a 24-story high-rise block of flats in west London -- in the neighborhood I have lived in for more than three decades. I can still remember the smell of burning, onlookers screaming, faces at the windows and people crying for help. The fire killed 72 people. In moments like this, you are left numb, utterly powerless. You question if this nightmare is really happening.Yvette WilliamsAs reports of the Bronx fire came in, I knew that the families and friends of residents in that apartment block, and the local community, would be living the same trauma. They would be holding on to hope that their loved ones survived. And in their shock, they would be questioning how the fire happened.We don't yet know the full circumstances of the Bronx fire, yet there are already striking similarities...
    NEW YORK (AP) — An apartment high-rise fire in New York City that killed 17 people and injured dozens of others on Sunday was one of the deadlier building blazes in the city’s history. Some lists of the city’s most deadly fires include the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center. Two commercial airline flights crashed in the towers, leading to fires and collapses of both buildings that killed about 2,750 people. Before 9/11, the deadliest fire in the city’s history was aboard the General Slocum excursion boat in the East River in 1904, when 1,021 passengers died. Here is a look at some of the most worst building fires in New York City: — BROOKLYN THEATRE: The blaze swept through a Brooklyn theater on Dec. 5, 1876, near the end of a performance of “The Two Orphans,” killing at least 278 people. Media reports said a gas lantern ignited some scenery, and many of the victims were trampled trying to get out of the building, which had no fire exits. — TRIANGLE SHIRTWAIST FACTORY: The fire on March 25,...

    (CNN)A lithium-ion battery in an electric bike or scooter self-combusted in a Bronx apartment building, sparking a four-alarm fire early Saturday morning, according to the Fire Department of New York (FDNY).The FDNY were alerted to flames at 2230 Grand Concourse just after 2 a.m. and the fire was extinguished about three hours later, with one firefighter sustaining minor injuries, an FDNY spokesperson told CNN Saturday.New York City Fire Marshals determined the initial flames were caused by a lithium-ion battery that burst into flames in a restaurant on the ground floor of the building, according to the FDNY. The fire then spread vertically through voids in the building and went up through the structure's internal framework spreading to apartments on the top floor where the blaze caused fire, smoke and water damage, the spokesperson explained."[It's] unclear on the make and model of the device, but they had several devices in there," the spokesperson said of the two-wheeler that caused the conflagration. "The important part is that it was the lithium-ion battery that caused it while charging an electronic device."Read MoreMore than...
    How hard is it to build a temporary NASCAR track in a football stadium? About the same as a building a permanent one. Construction of a quarter-mile track inside the L.A. Memorial Coliseum is underway. (NASCAR) New Valley Construction of Phoenix, Ariz., is in the process of paving over the entire field inside the L.A. Memorial Coliseum for February’s NASCAR Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum season-opening exhibition race. The quarter-mile track will be used for just one weekend, then torn up to return the facility to its original condition. The track was designed with help from iRacing. (NASCAR) Steve Boscardin, the New Valley executive in charge of the project, told Fox News Autos that it's following nearly the same procedure it would if it were laying a long-term surface. The big difference, is that it put protective layers of plastic and plywood over the field before laying a six-inch base of dirt on top. It took 500 truckloads to do that, which Boscardin said was tricky due to the narrow tunnel available to drive through. Another 70...
    "They cannot handle losing a single time," Glenn said. "And they're now blaming the 'insurrection' on this president [Trump] for questioning the outcome." "There's no question about it," Levin agreed. "When their people blew up the Capitol building in 1954, Jimmy Carter ultimately pardoned them. And when the Weather Underground, blew it up in 1971, Clinton ultimately pardoned them, and one of the ringleaders was Obama's buddy, Bill Ayers. They attacked the Pentagon and blew that up. And they blew up the State Department. And they circled back in 1983 and hit the Capitol building again...." "They're liars and hypocrites. The greatest problem we have in this country is the Democrat Party. Whether it's slavery, or segregation, or Jim Crow, or now it's 'democratic socialism,' they never embrace Americanism.

    A North Carolina woman who brought her 14-year-old son to Washington DC before storming the Capitol during the insurrection was sentenced to 90 days behind bars after the judge lambasted the miscreant mom for showing  a 'total lack of judgment.' Virginia Spencer, 38, wore a sweatshirt with the phrase 'F*** Gun Control' on the back when she and her husband, 41-year-old Christopher, went into Nancy Pelosi's office and joined a 'crowd that formed outside the House of Representatives chamber that attempted to enter that chamber while lawmakers were still trapped inside,' according to court documents. Prosecutors said that Spencer was among rioters who chanted 'Stop the steal!' and 'Break it down!' Footage from inside the Capitol shows Spencer taking selfies on her phone, taking a phone call and even smoking a cigarette. It is unclear whether their son, whose name was not disclosed in court papers because he is a minor, went inside with them, or whether he waited alone outside.  Virginia Spencer of North Carolina, 38, was charged with illegally parading in a government building after she and her husband joined...
    A U.S. Capitol Police officer has filed a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump for the injuries and trauma she suffered as a result of the Jan. 6 insurrection that took place last year. The lawsuit was filed in D.C. District Court on Thursday, January 6 — the one-year anniversary of the deadly insurrection— on behalf of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Briana Kirkland. The complaint reportedly details the "physical and emotional pain she endured, including a traumatic brain injury, because of the Capitol insurrection," according to CNN. It also describes the severity of Kirkland's involvement with members of the angry mob that stormed the Capitol building. Per CNN: "Kirkland had run to the Capitol alongside other officers as they attempted to form a line to protect the Lower West Terrace door -- which later became a scene of significant violence as the crowd attempted to get into the building. She said she had little protective gear and was outnumbered by the Trump-supporting crowd by 450 people to 1." READ: The damning evidence against Trump and his allies...
    With the Australian Open just ten days away, Novak Djokovic, who has been stranded at the Park Hotel detention center since Thursday, January 6, is fighting a legal battle to stay in Australia and defend his title. Source of pollution, fire, worm-infested food: The Melbourne Prevention Center, according to the Australian media, is the number one place in the world for used housing, and has been the subject of much controversy in recent weeks. The black brick and concrete building, Serbian, is in stark contrast to the apartments used by the 46th highest paid athlete in the world, according to a recent ranking by Forbes Magazine. The Park Hotel, which accommodates about 30 people in relatively crowded rooms, became famous when a building fire broke out last December, forcing it to evacuate and anyone being admitted to hospital. A week later, asylum seekers posted photos on social media claiming that the food provided to them was food with worms and mushroom bread. “The media talks a lot about us and the whole world probably, which is very sad because Djokovic...
    Rep. Bennie Thompson spoke to the Washington Post on the first anniversary of the Capitol riot Nancy Pelosi's Select Committee investigating the January 6 riot has evidence that sitting members of Congress gave tours to people who stormed the Capitol, Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi revealed on Thursday. He said some protesters had been shown the building the day before it was breached.   The Mississippi Democrat gave new details on the ongoing probe into the Capitol riot in an interview with the Washington Post exactly one year after the deadly events unfolded. 'We have information that members hosted people who came to Washington on that day in their office. We have information that before the actual certification, people who came earlier were given tours in the Capitol,' Thompson said. Thursday's interview marks the first time a member of the panel confirmed that sitting lawmakers or their offices gave tours to the rioters. It's not clear who they were or that the members of Congress were aware people would break into the building on January 6. Thompson continued, 'We have...
    As we remember the horrific attack that happened last year at the Capitol, we acknowledge not only all the lives lost but also those who stood strong and delivered us the news and updates as the day unfolded. Journalists, alongside our lawmakers, became targets for these terrorists who chose violence in an attempt to conduct their failed coup. On the anniversary of the riot and insurrection at the nation’s Capitol one year ago, journalists have shared footage and written op-eds today to remind us that this was not a peaceful protest; it was a deeply traumatizing event on national and personal levels. Mobs swarmed journalists at the Capitol on Jan. 6, threatening and physically attacking them and wrecking their equipment. Here’s a compilation of the stories they’ve shared today, and a chance to pay respect to these brave journalists and how they handled themselves in the face of danger. “I’ve witnessed plenty of violence and upheavals before, coups and revolutions, when I was doing conflict coverage abroad, but I am still shocked to experience it here. It was Americans attacking America,” Associated Press photographer J. Scott Applewhite...
    Vice President Kamala Harris was inside the Democratic Party's National Headquarters on January 6 last year when a pipe bomb was discovered outside the building, a new report claimed on Thursday. She was evacuated just minutes after the Capitol Police began investigating it, according to documents obtained by Politico.  The explosives were reportedly placed there the night before, meaning Harris would have entered the building while a bomb was nearby. The newly-revealed account of the United States Capitol Police's timeline of events when Donald Trump's supporters stormed the Capitol building raises fresh questions about the extent of security failings that day. Exactly one year to the day of the insurrection, the FBI is still looking for the suspect who placed two of the explosive devices outside of both the Republican and Democrat headquarters. At 1:07 p.m. on January 6, law enforcement reportedly began probing the pipe bomb placed outside Democrats' building. Just seven minutes later at 1:14 p.m. an unnamed 'protectee' was escorted out by Capitol Police and the Secret Service. Four sources including a White House official and a...

                 The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals accepted a potential landmark case involving the constitutionality of the City of Nashville’s practice of charging property owners fees for sidewalks in exchange for building permits. Nashville citizens Jason Mayes and Jim Knight first filed their lawsuit at the end of October, 2020. The action stems from a dispute arising when Mayes sought to build a home on a vacant lot located in a neighborhood that did not contain sidewalks. Officials determined in the permitting process that the “sidewalk law” applied, and, after an initial back-and-forth, Mayes paid the City a fee of nearly $9,000 – instead of building a sidewalk – in order to be allowed to proceed with the construction of his residence. Metro justifies charging its residents for sidewalks by saying that it benefits property owners through increased property value and safety. Metro Nashville Council made this change in policy when it replaced the previous version of Metro Code § 17.20.120 with BL2016-493, which took effect in 2017. The non-profit Beacon Center of Tennessee has been helping Mayes and...

    JACKSONVILLE (CBSMiami) – A group of residents were led away by police, one in handcuffs, from a room where Gov. Ron DeSantis was scheduled to give a news conference Tuesday morning. It began when an organizer asked Ben Frazier, community organizer and president of Jacksonville’s Northside Coalition, to leave the room at the Florida Department of Health- Duval County. But Frazier held firm to his stance that he had every right to be there.

Public expression, sir, it’s critical to our democracy. This governor has stood against our rights to protest and to assemble peaceably. It is wrong,” said Frazier. Frazier pointed out there is a lawsuit filed against the DeSantis administration over the protest laws. “We have a right our First Amendment rights, we can express them peaceably. And that...

    A massive asteroid, more than twice the size of the Empire State Building in New York, will come within 1.2 million miles of the Earth next month, according to NASA. The space rock, called 7482 (1994 PC1), poses no threat to the Earth as it will be five times further away from the planet than the Moon, as it shoots by at 43,000 mph. According to NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) it is a 'potentially hazardous object' as it crosses Earth's orbit as it travels around the Sun. The rock is 3,280ft in diameter, and after its close approach on January 18, 2022, at 16:51 ET (21:51 GMT), it won't be this close to the Earth again until 2105.  It will have a magnitude of 10 when it gets close, putting it out of reach for the naked eye and most binoculars, but should be visible using a back garden telescope.  A massive asteroid, more than twice the size of the Empire State Building in New York, will come within 1.2 million miles of the Earth next...
    The Pentagon is building a second secret courtroom at Guantanamo Bay to hold trials for suspected terrorists at the same time, as calls have grown for President Biden to shut down the controversial prison.  The new courtroom will exclude the public from the chamber, and permit two military judges to hold proceedings at the same time starting in 2023, according to the New York Times. Smaller cases would be held in the new chamber, which will cost $4 million to build, while Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the four other men accused of plotting the 9/11 attacks would be tried in the existing chamber, with a gallery for the public.  The Guantanamo Bay prison has become more and more secretive over its 20 years of operation, even as it costs taxpayers millions of dollars per year.  The Biden administration had signaled it aims to close the military prison in Cuba before leaving office, reviving an Obama-era promise.  Congress stood in the way of Obama's effort by forbidding any detainee from stepping foot on the US mainland.    Guantanamo has reportedly cost U.S....
    The Cleveland Browns need a miracle to make the playoffs and Baker Mayfield clearly has been impacted by all the issues inside the locker room.  In what was supposed to be a memorable year for the Cleveland Browns, it has been, but not for the reasons fans were hoping for. This team likely won’t be in the postseason and there’s been nothing but drama surrounding the players since early on in the fall. No one saw it coming. Things of course were headlined by Odell Beckham Jr.’s dad blasting Baker Mayfield. Beckham has since been released and he’s now a touchdown machine over in the NFC for the Los Angeles Rams. For Mayfield, he didn’t hesitate in admitting that all of the team’s issues have been rough for him. Baker Mayfield said that it’s been harder to drown out noise than ever, but with a caveat: “Yes, but only because some of that drama was in the building, so it wasn’t directly outside.” Said they dealt with it, it’s in the past and they’ve moved on. #Browns — Hayden...
    This it the stomach-churning moment a pair of adrenaline junkies ran up a 274ft skyscraper overlooking West Ham stadium.  Chilling drone footage shows the pair racing each another up Stratford One building's slanted roof in east London without the use of ropes or safety equipment on November 15. The pair, who wished to remain anonymous, run along the inclining roof before reaching the top of the skyscraper and looking down to the road below. The duo, who planned the dangerous project over two days, said they laid their eyes on the Stratford One building, which is used as student accommodation, after admiring its unique architecture last month.
                 Members of the Tennessee State Building Commission last week approved a budget that more than doubles the amount for infrastructure improvements at the Megasite of West Tennessee. State Building Commission members and the State Building Commission’s staff did not return The Tennessee Star’s requests for comment Monday. Tennessee Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville) serves on the Building Commission, according to the Office of the State Architect’s website. Doug Kufner spoke on Sexton’s behalf, via email. “In the October special session, the General Assembly approved and appropriated an additional $138 million for infrastructure at the Megasite. In July the State Building Commission approved $50 million for utility construction, of which $15M was appropriated in FY 21-22 and the remainder from prior year appropriations,” Kufner wrote. “These two appropriations in FY21-22 increased the project by $153 million and brought the total project budget to $274 million which is reflected in the SBC documents from the December meeting.” Other State Building Commission members include Governor Bill Lee, Lieutenant Governor Randy McNally (R-Oak Ridge), Secretary of State Tre Hargett, State...

    London is proud of its Kerkin, while the Parisians refuse to build a “fry” shaped skyscraper. This 700 million euro project sowed discord within the French political landscape. Angry Parisians have landed in a final attempt to halt construction of a 42-storey skyscraper in the center of the capital. With a budget of over 700 million euros, the building has been compared by many French architects and politicians to a “huge bribe.” A triangular tower will be on the valuable campus Designed by Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, the building will have 42 floors and home offices, a four-star hotel, a cultural center and a health center. Its triangular shape and large bay windows make it a unique and modern building. If it is built, it will become the tallest skyscraper in the city since the Montburnas Tower was built in 1973.

    Felicia Harper says all she needed was a chance to do something positive. When a six-week construction training program landed in her lap, it led to union membership, employment and a new outlook on life. “I heard about it from a friend that participated. She thought it would be good for me; she didn’t (have to sell it),” said Harper, 32, of Oakland. “She knew I was having a really hard time. I was looking for something, just to escape, so I was all for it. I thought it was something positive.” That something positive was Rising Sun Center for Opportunity, an Oakland nonprofit focused on economic equity and climate resilience that connects interested people into training and placement in the construction industry. As part of Rising Sun’s Opportunity Build initiative, a yearly program called Women Building The Bay brings in candidates and provides skills, tools and support to get hired. Harper says Rising Sun “changed my life.” I remember being very poor. I was always intelligent, but I never had the skills to make a better living, And I...

    When Minneapolis city employees come back to work on January 10th — currently the plan, at least in a hybrid sense, depending on the department — they’ll be in for quite a treat. Many of the thousands of people who (theoretically) work in the brand new ten-story Public Service Building covering everything from 311 to Public Works to the Police, have never even seen their new offices. In place of being scattered all around office sites in a variety of downtown spots, they’ll all be centralized. And waiting for them will be the largest debut of city public art in Minneapolis history. “We hardly every work indoors,” admitted Mary Altman, the city’s Public Art Administrator, describing the city’s other public artworks. “Usually all of our art has to handle freeze-thaw conditions, and be planned around what it would be like to be hit by a car or plow or lawn mower.” That’s not the case for the $2M of artworks that are literally embedded in the new building, funded through the city’s public art ordinance that dedicates 1.5% of capital...
