Dare to Dream in Bancroft

There are 81 neighborhoods in the City of Minneapolis and I'd never heard of Bancroft prior to the time that I took these photos last week. I've driven down its streets but it wasn't until I stepped out of my car to take some photos and talked to some people on the street that I found out more.

The Bancroft Neighborhood Association has aided in some of the murals in the area. Some of them appear to have been created from El Colegio Charter School; a small public high school in Minneapolis that has been serving students in English and Spanish since 2000.

  1. If you go over to El Colegio, at 42nd and Bloomington Ave. South, you'll see that the students got permission to paint at least 3 or 4 garage doors on the streets surrounding the school.
