Life, on the lawn

Minneapolis — To many, Andrew Moore is "that guy in south Minneapolis with all the stuff on his lawn." It's a pretty accurate description — Moore's front yard is currently filled with everything from spray-painted industrial tubing to plastic baby doll heads to wooden plaques denouncing racism and poverty.

Like many artists, Moore uses his work as a way to address his frustrations: his anger with past employers, his sadness over the loss of his mother, his memories of the 10 years in spent in prison. It's all channeled into his enormous art installations. The resulting creations are always on display at the corner of Bloomington Avenue and 33rd Street East.
