To view more work by the artist, please visit paigetaul.com.

Ruth Hodgins is an artist and a founding board member of Roman Susan Art Foundation. Hodgins was the Bentson Archivist and Programmer working at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis from 2016-2019, and the Distribution Manager at the Video Data Bank at the Art Institute of Chicago between 2013-2016.

City seeking input on 38th Street Strategic Development THRIVE Plan
The City of Minneapolis is seeking community feedback for the final revision to the 38th Street Strategic Development THRIVE Plan.
The plan is an opportunity toward continuing the legacy and heritage of a deeply rooted African American community by preserving their economic vibrancy, creative identity, and affordability that strengthens the vitality, resilience and partnership of the people who live and work in the district. The plan has been created by community stakeholders in collaboration with the City of Minneapolis.

Proposed changes would best describe where and how the community wants to grow, based on historical roots, a desire for stronger community vitality and sustainable economic growth in the future. The deadline to comment is Monday, Dec. 7, 2020. Learn more about the plan and how to provide feedback on the City’s websiteSpeed limit now 20 mph on local residential streets for safety
Crews have finished installing signs at entry points in Minneapolis alerting drivers that the speed limit is now 20 mph in the city unless otherwise signed. The City of Saint Paul expects to complete its installation of new citywide and downtown gateway signs by early 2021.

Slower speeds on local streets make travel safer for everyone no matter how you get around. The speed limit changes follow detailed technical studies done by the cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul Public Works departments to determine appropriate local speed limits as required by state statute. Now that the gateway signs are installed in Minneapolis, the 20 mph speed limit on local residential streets is in effect. The cities will generally not be posting 20 mph signs on local residential streets.

New speed limits are 20 mph for local residential streets; 25 mph for larger, arterial City-owned streets; and 30-plus mph for a few City-owned streets. Per Minnesota law, cities do not have authority to change speed limits on County and MnDOT roads. Speed limits on these streets in Minneapolis and Saint Paul will not change.

Reducing speed limits is one of the key strategies in the Minneapolis Vision Zero Action Plan, which outlines key steps for the next three years to advance the City’s goal of ending traffic deaths and injuries on City streets by 2027
Watch a video promoting the new slower speed limits in EnglishSpanishSomali and Hmong.
Learn more about the speed limit changes at visionzerompls.com and stpaul.gov/speedlimits.

COVID-19 restrictions in effect as pandemic surges:
To address the surge in COVID-19 cases, in-person social gatherings with individuals outside your household are prohibited; bars and restaurants are dialed back to take-out and delivery service only; gyms, fitness studios, entertainment venues, event spaces, and similar establishments will need to close; and adult and youth sports are paused until Friday, Dec. 18. Retail businesses, salons, and places of worship may continue to operate with proper precautions in place. Childcare remains open. Schools will continue to operate under the Safe Learning Plan, which shifts between in-person, distance, and hybrid learning depending on the local conditions of the virus. All other current restrictions also remain in effect.

The pandemic has reached a concerning and dangerous phase throughout much of the Midwest this November. It took 29 weeks to reach 100,000 infections in Minnesota, and just six weeks after that to reach 200,000. Now the state has surpassed 300,000 infections. Find more information on the restrictions.

National Influenza Vaccination Week is Dec. 6-12. The week reminds everyone 6 months and older that there’s still time to get vaccinated against flu to be protected during the upcoming winter and holiday months.
The flu is serious and kills 30,000-60,000 people every year. Those most at risk for serious complications from flu and COVID-19 include people with underlying health conditions such as diabetes or lung disease; people 65 and older; and Black, Latinx and Indigenous people.

This winter, we’ll be dealing with the flu and COVID-19 at the same time, so it’s more important than ever to get a flu shot. It’s the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones and our health care workers and emergency responders. Getting a flu shot is easy, safe and free, even if you don’t have health insurance. Flu season lasts through March. If you can’t get vaccinated now, it’s OK to do it later, even in early 2021. Read more

Ways to Help

How to donate food & supplies If you’re moved to support your community by donating food, the best way to reach hungry people is through food shelves.
