this house is not for sale
THIS HOUSE IS NOT FOR SALE (THINFS) is a public art project conceived of by artist Witt Siasoco and poet Molly Van Avery. Utilizing the realty sign as both a symbol for the themes of the project and as a structure for displaying art, poets and Siasoco created site specific artworks in front yards throughout Minneapolis. THINFS brought together homeowners who purchased a previously foreclosed home with the assistance of the City of Lakes Community Land Trust and artists
to think about what it means to acknowledge a home’s history and make a life in the wake of someone else’s loss.
