Edge Life magazine was a proud co-sponsor of Uptown Art Fair, which took place August 4-6 in the Uptown area of South Minneapolis. The magazine’s staff coordinated a comfort station and offered fairgoers free massage and Reiki treatments throughout the three-day event, courtesy of Minneapolis School of Massage, Ocean Waves Massage & O2 Lounge, Touch of Tranquility, and Rachel Miejan (Reiki by Miejan). It was a wonderful opportunity to share Edge Life magazine with those who have not seen it.
Print winner: Edge Life conducted a drawing for a free art print by artist Julie Leigh during Uptown Art Fair. The winner was Cynthia Haasken of Columbia Heights, Minn.
Uptown Art testimonial: "I am so happy I stumbled upon your newspaper the other afternoon at the Minneapolis Uptown Art Fair. I’m a St. Paul native currently living in NYC (I moved here close to four years ago after I graduated from college), and not only did I devour Edge Life cover to cover on the plane ride from Minneapolis back to NYC, but it truly made me feel joyful. I’ve been struggling for a while now with the decision of whether or not to move back home with my family, or stay out here and keep at this exciting, fast-paced life. Your journal truly helped me to understand that I need to listen to my heart and really heed my inner voice. I’m still in deciding mode, but I think I now know what I want, and thus, have to do." – Marissa Kristal, New York City
