Motionpoems presents colossal public artwork in Saint Paul

Motionpoems presented a massive, one-of-a-kind audio-visual public art experience at Union Depot Oct 10 – 11, 2014, to coincide with the St. Paul Art Crawl. The project, titled “Arrivals & Departures,” was a compilation of four poems on the theme of “arrivals and departures” by Minnesota poets that were made into four short films by Minnesota filmmakers.

“Arrivals & Departures at Saint Paul’s Union Depot,” a micro-documentary from Motionpoems on Vimeo.

The films were projected across the façade of Union Depot on nine 35’ tall screens hung
