The future of St. Paul’s light rail is looking bright now that the nine Green Line stops are nearly complete. With the many years of construction it’s hard to remember what the University Ave. community looked like five years ago, let alone imagine how it was five decades prior to that.

The Twin Cities Photography group has seized this notable moment in St. Paul history to capture the changing face of University Ave., while also reflecting on its past. Tonight at the A-Z Gallery, the TC Photography group will display its first gallery show of the year entitled: “9 Stops,” which applies to both the number of light rail stations on the Green Line, as well as the f/stop camera setting. The exhibit was made possible through the Irrigate Grant as part of Springboard for the Arts, and as such, the photographers hope their imagery provokes conversation about the changes coming to University Ave.

Munch on appetizers from Tanpopo, enjoy drinks from the Black Dog (cash bar), and take a visual tour of the Green Line (while staying warm). All prints will be on sale. 6 p.m. Free.
