Artist's notes:

Lake Harriet Band Shelter pen and ink illustrationThe drawing of the Lake Harriet Band Shelter was completed in 1994. When you choose to draw such a building, you must know that given the history of the site (the building has burned to the ground and had to be rebuilt) your illustration will become more of a historical image rather than a contemporary one. After I completed this drawing, the building was painted, so nearly immediately it lost its worth as a currently depiction of the site. But it remains as I see it a fairly accurate and eye pleasing rendering of a lovely building in a remarkable setting.

Information about the Lake Harriet Bandshell:

The current incarnation of the Lake Harriet Bandshell was constucted in 1986. It stands on the site of previous buildings, some of which burned down or destroyed by fire. The building was designed by the local architectural firm of Bentz Thompson Rietow. The architect was Milo Thompson. The building itself has a 30 foot by 25 foot glass in the back of the building that faces out towards the lake, so as you look into from the front, you can see the lake and any activity on it. The bandshell has a seating capacity of about 900. The bandshell underwent a major refurbishing in 2004. The Park Board itself did not have the funds available, so local businessman Mark McGowan organized groups of volunteers, funded by private donations, to repaint the Bandshell, refectory and sailing pavilion. Working in tandem with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the exterior of the building was painted light brown (it had been blue) and some upgrades to the sound system were done, along with the large glass plate being replaced with a thicker, stronger glass. During the summer months concerts are held in the building with a wide variety of music being represented. The building is now also available to rent to hold wedding ceremonies.
