RICE STREET


About Rice Street and the Visioning Study


Constructed in the 1800’s as a commercial corridor, Rice Street has been the home to streetcar lines, housing, and hundreds of businesses over the years. At nearly two hundred years old, today’s Rice Street remains a hub of activity in Saint Paul and serves a diverse mix of residents, travelers, visitors, businesses and modes of transportation. The aging of the roadway brings with it safety and traffic concerns, but also the opportunity to ponder the question, “What is next for Rice Street?” The Rice Street Visioning Study invites community voices into this conversation. As we plan for better surfaces, there are also needs to strengthen community development, business vitality, bike and pedestrian connections, public safety, livability and compatible land uses in the corridor.

Kazua Melissa Vang is a Hmong American storyteller using the mediums of photography, visual art, filmmaking and producing.

Her current photography project is taking portraits of Hmong refrigerators and freezers titled, “F R I D G E S,” that was featured in the exhibit “Foodway” (Summer 2018) at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design; a curatorial project exhibit, “Thirty-Three Views” (2019) in east side Saint Paul; and at Second Shift Studio Space on Payne Avenue. Vang’s mixed-media artwork was published as a book art cover for the Saint Paul Almanac 2019, “Resistance and Resilience, Vol 12.” She co-founded the Asian Pacific Island American Minnesota Film Collective. Since 2014, she has worked with In Progress, an art nonprofit in North End Saint Paul, as a lead artist and mentor. Much of her work in association with Rice Street was through In Progress. She was a lead artist in the North End Initiative, where photographers and filmmakers gather stories, portraits and images of the neighborhood in an exhibit and presentation to the community.

Krista Beier is a creative who uses art as

a voice for social change and a means of selfexploration through altering space. Librarian by day, artist by night, her work focuses on her relationship both with the community and the earth. She is inspired by her cultural heritage and draws deeply upon the imagery of her ancestors. She dabbles in a variety of mediums, including mandalas, sculpture (especially with unusual materials!), puppetry, textiles and more. She considers herself a public artist, and loves creating interactive pieces to connect with others. She has created work for the Art-Shanties and Made Here MN, and has been a Minnesota State Arts Board grant recipient. Krista lives in the North End, a few blocks off Rice Street, with her husband, her dog, cats and ducks. She’s an avid gardener, reader and explorer!





Kyle Voigtlander is a North

End-based visual artist, curator, illustrator, concept artist, designer and environmental activist.

Voigtlander believes that art can serve as a strong indicator of a society’s value system. He creates with this in mind, satisfying an inner calling to create by sharing relevant parts of his experience with the world through visual, pictorial means. In an effort to combat negative culture by contributing his own, positive culture, Kyle’s work continues to adapt to his surroundings through continually sharpening his perspectives on topics such as worldview, art, truth, philosophy, current affairs and the human condition.





Melvin Giles is a Community and Global Peacemaker and a Bubbling Artist. He incorporates Peace Bubbles, Peace Messages and the International Peace Pole to create places/ spaces of peace. He is known for his signature style of blowing and sharing peace bubbles. He started using bubbles to bridge a gap and distrust between the Black community and the Saint Paul Police Department in the late 1990s by offering police officers bubbles for their domestic calls to give kids when investigating domestic violence in residential settings, in order for the children to have a healthier perception of police officers in general. Giles recently worked with two other artists on an exterior face-lift of the Rondo Library and received a 2020 Forecast mini-grant to promote hope during Minnesota’s COVID-19 sheltering-in-place.



The Peace Pole Project was started in Japan by Masahisa Goi (1916 – 1980), who dedicated his life to spreading the message, “May Peace Prevail on Earth”. Mr. Goi was greatly affected by the destruction caused by World War II and the atomic bombs which fell on the city of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. His desire to assist in the creation of world peace was answered when in 1955, the Peace Message, May Peace Prevail On Earth, came to him in a moment of great inspiration and deep prayer. The Peace Pole Project was first introduced to the United States with the opening of The World Peace Prayer Society offices in San Francisco and New York in 1986, The International Year of Peace. Peace Poles are now the most recognized international peace symbol and monument the world over with more than 200,000 Peace Poles standing in almost every country throughout the world. Minnesota is known by many as the Peace Pole Capitol of North America!


What does your Peace Pole say? Write your own message or design and color in this Peace Pole.

Color pencils work well for small details!


E C I R H T I W G N COOKI Rice Milk Smoothie

1 ½ cups rice milk 1 slice banana, ripe 3⁄4 tablespoon peanut butter

Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend well. If you like it cold you can freeze the banana slices and/or add ice if you like.

Enjoy!


Rice Krispie Treats You only need these simple ingredients for these no-bake squares. ¾ cup Butter 11 cups Mini Marshmallows ½ tsp Vanilla Extract 1 pinch of Salt 9 cups Rice Krispies Cereal (Any Brand will do) Sheet of Parchment Paper STEPS: 1. Slowly melt the butter and marshmallows in a big pot on the stove 2. Remove from heat and gently stir in the remaining ingredients 3. Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper 4. Add non-stick spray or oil to the parchment paper to prevent sticking Secrets to this recipe Don’t pound or pack the rice krispie treats down into the baking pan. Use greased fingers or a greased spatula to softly spread and stretch the mixture into the pan, then use a flat spatula to very gently press the mixture down. Butter the back of a flat spatula or spray with a little nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking. Your treats will be soft yet crisp and not overly crunchy.
