Stop the NE Minneapolis Pierogi Project sign now

I either: live, work, play, grew-up or have lived in Northeast Minneapolis, MN and do not want the Pierogi Project (a 17 foot bronze Pierogi on a fork statue to represent the Polish community, Eastern Europeans and other ethnic groups who may eat something that looks like it.) to be placed at the intersection of Central and Lowry Ave as intended or any other NE cross intersection for many reasons including those listed below.

1) The Pieorgi Project does not give dignity to the whole community of Northeast Minneapolis, MN.
2) The Pieorgi Project does not give dignity to those of Polish decent and other Eastern European natives who risked everything they had to come to Northeast, Minneapolis to settle and make it their home.
3) The Pieorgi Project does not give dignity to those who suffered in the hands of the communists while living in their home land in Eastern Europe then coming to Northeast, Minneapolis to live out the rest of their lives.
4) The Pieorgi Project is not a true representation of Northeast Minneapolis and it diverse community either present or historically. Why dont we just put a bronze statue of a potato on a plate since most people eats them in the many cultures that co-exist in Northeast Minneapolis?
5) The Pieorgi Project is a waste of money (at first was told $35,000 to build it now $45,000) even through it is supposed to be private funded; it is co-sponsored by publicly funded entities such as NE Community Development Corporation and Edison High School. The NECDC has stated they get no funding from the city of Minneapolis but did state they receive other public funding which goes towards other projects. Which means those public funds loosen up the private funds to help support this project.
6) The Pieorgi Project is just plain and simple bad public art.
7) The Pieorgi Project will be looked at as a roadside attraction like the biggest chicken, Walleye or ball of string; making it more of a joke instead of art.


We ask the artist and those who support this project to reconsider the negative impact this piece of art will have on our neighborhood. We ask the artist to use his talents to create a piece of art work that will depict and encompass all that Northeast Minneapolis is and that is a place of great character, strength and pride.
