A project for the City and the People of Minneapolis by the Minneapolis Community Development Agency

[City Officials listed]

"Dedicated to the People of Minneapolis and their children and their children's children, that through the years it may lighten the cares of life's vicissitudes with wholesome laughter, that they may drink the innocent inspirations of music, that they may trap themselves in the soft cloak of the Arts and revel in decent recreation against the humdrum routine of mundane existence."
(Taken from a 1921 local theater dedication)

Jay Jensen, MCDA Executive Director

November 7, 1991
