The East Side Arts Council is honored to have The Hub at Beacon Bluff among the nominees of the 2014 Great Places Awards! This project is a collaboration with the Saint Paul Port Authority featuring public art by Gita Ghei and Philip Blackburn. A special thank you to our funders: National Endowment for the Arts, McKnight Foundation, and McNeely Foundation.
Check out ESAC's youtube page for a video showing highlights from the fabrication process of Philip Blackburn's The Scope, which will stand at Beacon Bluff just steps from Gita Ghei's sculpture, "Bubblicious."

"To me, art is a continuous circle that is constantly changing and taking different shapes. My art is influenced by my emotions, my surroundings, and my experiences in life. It is hard to separate art from my life. Though my style has changed greatly since my earlier works, my paintings still show impressions of my heritage. Nature is my inspiration. I try to capture its beauty, energy, and patterns in my work. But the beautiful and the exotic are not my only subjects. I find beauty all around me, even in the plain and ordinary. I am also inspired by cultural aspects of life, and try to capture these in both painting and photography."
