Upon his return to Minnesota from a month long residency at The Labyrinth in Gulf Port, Florida, he completed a residency at Saint Paul Academy. His students there were busy creating a huge medieval city including 200 2-foot tall towers. Now he is in residence at The Landmark Arts Center way up north near Canada in Henning Minnesota.
From there he will conduct three weeks of residencies in New York Mills Minnesota, Henning Minnesota, Underwood Minnesota, and Battle Lake Minnesota. In these residencies Aldo’s students will create 950 2-foot tall ceramic skyscrapers! 6000 pounds of clay will be used. Each one is unique each one representing an individual person from the Lake country of Minnesota.
Then on May 14 they will all come together and create a gigantic city of the people! A community of art! After that he is off to North Dakota to do it again.
The North Dakota event is at the state college in Devils Lake, ND. Then he will begin phase 1 of The Majeed Commission in Saint Petersburg Florida, a 3 year long commission of Aldo’s work based on his Babylon Project. They will create a 5 million dollar estate on the Gulf coast – the rebirth of Babylon!
Then it’s back home to Minneapolis where he will begin the prototype piece of his Ten Thousand Towers Project which recently won funding from The Minnesota State Arts Board Artists Initiative Grant. That’s another doozie of a project. He will kick that one off at The Art-a-WHIRL at The California Building in Beautiful Nordeast Minneapolis.
If you want to make skyscrapers with Aldo now is the time just get in touch via his spanking new web site created by The Sinard Group, a web developer focusing on the needs of artists, writers, musicians and creatives. It launches Today! So Get on Board/ Feel my disease!
