Stroll Around Downtown Minneapolis

I recently visited downtown Minneapolis and snapped a few photos.

Nicollet Avenue
Three Bird Fountain
Nicollet Mall at 9th Street
Elliot Offner, 1991

Orpheum Theater
The Orpheum Theater opened in 1921, and has hosted plays, concerts, big bands, vaudeville, comedy, and screened movies. It was once owned by Bob Dylan and his brother.

Old Schmidt Music Building Mural
This mural painted on the side of what used to be the Schmidt Music building depicts Maurice Ravel's "Gaspard de la Nuit."


  1. Fun to wander around downtown. always something to see.

  2. Absolutely! Wishing I could get around to places like this more often. The people watching is fun, and soon enough, people will be huddled inside away from the cold.
