Andy DuCett at the Soap Factory is the Daily Pic by Blake Gopnik

The Daily Pic: In Minneapolis, Andy DuCett captures a local vibe.

A detail from an installation called "Why We Do This"

Another image from my recent trip to Minneapolis – this time showing one small part of a massive installation by local artist Andy DuCett, filling the entire Soap Factory arts center. Here DuCett has built Brobdingnagian Lego, but elsewhere in the show he’s installed a real bar, a mini football field and a working thrift shop. The Twin Cities seem to have an old-time, survivalist, DIY spirit, and DuCett has bottled it.
