The empty lot where the former Roberts Shoes Building once stood has become a lively art space connected to the community around Lake Street. KFAI’s Sheila Regan talked with artists involved with the Lake Street Truth Collective about how the empty lot has become a vibrant new center of artmaking and truth-telling.
“There’s such a breadth of talent in this city, that I’m always so excited for people to be witness to it,” says Xochi De La Luna, an artist with the Lake Street Truth Collective. “And I’m really committed to being one of those people that lives here for the rest of their life, to nurture the arts community. There’s a lot of like, restructuring that has to happen. Whether people realize it or not.. Because we need people.. to help the artists that are still trying to figure out their way here. I’m glad that I’m able to do some of that work with this project as well.”

Charlene Doll takes the driver’s seat this week, interviewing Rubin Hardin, Accessibility Innovator for In The Heart of The Beast Puppet and Mask Theater.
Homer Flynn is an American artist, graphic designer and businessman who is known for his role as founding member, co-owner and current “Captain Doc” of The Cryptic Corporation, the management and public relations firm which has represented The Residents since 1976.
Jon Copeland is the former host of KFAI’s Rock of Rages and could likely lay claim to being one of the first to bring The Residents to Twin Cities airwaves (our claim, not his.) When the opportunity arose to speak to a Cryptic representative about the most recent Residents release, Metal, Meat & Bone, and the (now postponed… again) 50th anniversary tour, Jon was the first guy we turned to.
He and Homer go pretty deep into the weeds on some less discussed Residents projects and the group’s future plans. Mason pops in at the end with a vaccum cleaner.
