ASI @ Northern Spark: TönöSauna

Saturday, June 14, 2014 - 9:00pm

The night's about to get steamy between Swedes and strangers as ASI brings the time-honored art and Finnish tradition of the sauna to Northern Spark, Minneapolis' all-night arts festival on June 14, 2014. 

ASI has commissioned Futures North to create and craft a mobile public sauna experience inside TönöSauna, a wood burning sauna built from a salvaged 1966 Avion travel trailer.   Inside the sauna, the community conversation heats up as ASI and FuturesNorth curates a series of dialogue with public leaders and eventgoers that will be projected outside to the larger world via webcam and internet.  Join in the conversation and the art in person at NorthernSpark or online through Facebook and Twitter. 

About Northern Spark 
On the second Saturday in June each summer, tens of thousands of people gather along the Minneapolis riverfront and throughout the city to explore giant video projections, play in temporary installations in the streets, and enjoy experimental performances in green spaces and under bridges. From dusk to dawn the city surprises you: friendly crowds, glowing groups of cyclists, an unexpected path through the urban landscape, the magic of sunrise after a night of amazing art and experiences. Northern Spark is the one-night arts event people talk about for the rest of the year. For more information, visit

Northern Spark is presented by Northern, a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to transform our sense of what’s possible in public space. Northern Spark is one night, but Northern shines throughout the year with projects such as Creative City Challenge for the Minneapolis Convention Center, The Giant Sing-A-Long at the Minnesota State Fair, and permanent, interactive public art for Saint Paul’s Union Depot.
