Festival Station to Station feat. Patti Smith, Eleanor Friedberger, No Age
St. Paul, MN 55101
Station to Station is the newest project from artist Doug Aitken, a liquid platform for artistic experimentation that connects artists, musicians, and cultural icons with diverse communities for a series of interventions and site-specific happenings. Over the course of three weeks in September, a train will travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific, making nine stops along the way in New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, each time for a one-night only live event. A moving platform for artistic experimentation, Station to Station invites artists and audiences alike to participate in a creative collision of contemporary art, experimental music, and film. Art works and musical performances will change at every stop. Union Depot is the setting for the St. Paul happening on September 12.
Union Depot in downtown St. Paul has been transformed from a defunct rail station to an active transportation center in the heart of a thriving urban neighborhood and serves as the terminus of Twin Cities’ newest LRT line, connecting the downtowns of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
