URBAN WORDS is an art
project in motion featuring photos of letter forms taken in
Minneapolis by local fine art photographer, Brenda Johnson. All of Brenda’s art (and jewelry) focus on re-purposed
production. 90% of the materials used to produce URBAN WORDS are
recycled or re-purposed. Each Urban Word is unique! No two are exactly the same and
each “word of art” is signed, dated and numbered “1-of-1”.
Order a name,
a phrase, or a single word that means something special to someone! URBAN WORDS
are produced in 4x6 or 2x3
letters and are mounted to re-purposed black, brushed silver, or frosted plexiglass boards.
At our retail locations, look for URBAN WORDS key chains, greeting cards, magnets, and our most recent product,the URBAN WORD KIT – a box containing color letter tiles and black wooden stands so you can produce a custom word on the fly.
New products are always being designed! Watch our retail locations for URBAN WORDS: Paris Edition, New York City Edition, and URBAN WORDS Flash Cards (not necessarily for kids).
URBAN WORDS can be purchased at the following retail locations:GUILD Collective,The Bee Cottage, Uptown Minneapolis (located at the MSP Airport) and
I like You. URBAN WORDS can also be purchased at special events sponsored by and held at West Elm in Edina, MN.
