The City of Minneapolis commissioned Sara Rotholz Weiner to create this mural on the side of a grain elevator in 1992. It’s one of the largest murals commissioned by the city and is hard to miss when you’re traveling along Hiawatha Avenue. In addition to the historic scenes and images of the nighttime sky, the seemingly abstract lines and shapes were created by tracing the shadows of the elevator, surrounding structures and wires.

The mural is signed by the artist and includes some explanatory text and acknowledgment to supporters, but unfortunately a chain link fence has been installed that terminates in the middle of this text, making it very difficult to read.
