Locus Architecture unveiling time capsule contents
During renovation work, Locus Architecture discovered a 1940 time capsule tucked into the ceiling of their building at 708 W. 40th St.
The company will display the contents of the capsule for public viewing during their renovation celebration, scheduled for Nov. 4, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
In a press release, Locus notes that the capsule mostly contained issues of the Minneapolis Star Journal. The Nov. 4 event reveals “objects unseen and untouched for seventy years as news — now historic — and modern art,” the release notes.
Refreshments, discussion and a quiz generated from the papers will accompany the exhibition.

Meeting about sewer improvements scheduled
