Little Mekong Plaza

“Make Common Spaces Great Places” is a project that seeks to spotlight what is possible in public parks and green spaces, through the creation of demonstration sites and events that celebrate placemaking and the importance of community gathering spaces . 

“Paint the Plaza” is an art activity set at the St. Paul Meat Market Site, on the parking lot of Mai Village. The public is invited to join Mural/Pavement Artist Kao Lee Thao and members of the CHAT ( Center for Hmong Arts and Talent) Leadership Team in the painting a plaza design on the pavement . This event is a commission by Irrigate Artist Organizer, Soozin Hirschmugl and Green Line Parks and Commons Initiative, and AEDA ( Asian Economic Development Association to celebrate and spotlight the importance of community gathering spaces along University Ave.

This is the first privately owned, by Hmong American Partnership public space on the Green Line on University Avenue in St. Paul.
