Welcome to Powderhorn365! 


Mission

Through the lenses of volunteer photographers, Powderhorn365 tells the daily stories of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood: making people and places visible, documenting history and celebrating life. Powderhorn365 produces a visual, community-written narrative through photo postings, photobooks and exhibits.

Vision

Powderhorn365 provides value to the neighborhood by contributing to public art, inspiring people and connecting the patchwork of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood. Powderhorn365 benefits photographers by spurring creative growth, continuing education, breaking isolation and developing their personal experience of the community. The program serves the neighborhood by creating a platform for the community members to draft their own shared narrative. It serves local youth by documenting where they grew up and providing reasons to stay or come back to the neighborhood. Local businesses and organizations gain visibility through the program and it encourages people to cross cultural barriers.

History

Powderhorn365 began January 1, 2009, thanks to Amy Wurdock and a group of photographers.  The project continued with a new group each year.  We are now a program of Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association, and that partnership has given us the support we need to sustain this project. Our gratitude to PPNA for helping us explore new and exciting ways to celebrate the neighborhood through photography, including photo-wrapped utility boxes along the streets of Powderhorn and neighboring communities. (Click on the PPNA icon on this page for their site.)

Look back at the prior years to get the full spectrum of talent and perspective from 2009 to date. If you want to see the photo full screen, click on it to open.

Photographers

Daily photographers for 2018 include David Pierini, Ben Wells, Kimani Beard, Stephanie Paxton, Jenn Fisher, and Edith Carlson. We look forward to viewing what this group sees in Powderhorn.

"Snowman"

The great Christmas snow storm of 2009, as I choose to call it, increased the population of Minnesota significantly.

"Winter Storm"
My last photo of the year! I really wanted to capture the oncoming snowstorm which hit the Twin Cities this evening. However, the snowfall accumulation wasn't as much as was expected. So as I drove around the neighborhood I found myself outside Jakeeno's. This image of the corner of 35th and Chicago speaks to the essence of our neighborhood. Snow, good food, busy city with personality. Thanks Powderhorn365!

"White and Bright"
Our first big snow of the season gave us a nice white out. Not much going on in the park today as it is cold and windy! The colors on the updated pavilion where really popping out. It will be interesting to see this landscape change in a few more months... we will be back to green grass and blue skies and a sparkling lake. For now, I am going to enjoy the snow and white landscape while I can!

"Flakes a flying"
Minneapolis Public Schools custodian Dennis Neumeier used a snow blower to clear off a few inches of fallen powder on the sidewalks and doorways around the Wilder Complex at the corner of 34th Street and Chicago Avenue. The temperature at the time was 7 degrees, which was warm compared to the sub-zero temperatures that started off the final week in December.
