The project celebrates the National Park Service‘s 100th Anniversary as well as MIA’s Seeing Nature exhibition and will continue through Sept. 18.

Henry Longfellow Approved


A mural painted by local artist, Erik Pearson, portraying Henry Longfellow, Minnehaha Falls. and Minnesota baseball, spans the back wall of Longfellow’s Blue Door restaurant on 42nd Avenue. The outside wall of the booth below proudly displays photos of those who have consumed enough burgers to fill up their Blue Door punch card and earn a t-shirt and a place on the wall of honor.
