State Fair Project Info »

AIGA Minnesota’s Design for Good initiative has partnered with architects from The Common Table to tell the story of local food systems at the 2014 Minnesota State Fair. Beginning in May 2014, seventeen designers met with various stakeholders—organic farmers, food-to-table restaurants, nonprofits, and other organizations involved with sustainable agricultural initiatives—to craft exhibit panels as part of a larger food exhibit in the Horticulture Building at the Fair.
