In discussion of City Hall murals, many ask for them to go


courtesy of Jane Prince The East Side Freedom Library held a community conversation about murals in St. Paul City Hall on Jan. 10. The murals have raised concerns for a number of years due to their depiction of African American and indigenous peoples in relation to white men. More recently, residents have wondered if the murals should continue to be on display in what is considered a democratic space.

Community members gathered at the East Side Freedom Library Jan. 10 to discuss murals inside St. Paul City Hall and whether the city council chambers is an appropriate place for them to be on display.

photos courtesy Dodge Nature Center When snow was still on the ground, Cornelius the goat enjoyed his first winter at Dodge Nature Center. Besides hoofprints from him prancing around, other marks could be found in the snow, like the curious circles found by a naturalist.
