Downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota Skyline Panoramic Picture - Sunset Panorama

SKU: MN9
This twilight panorama of Minneapolis was taken by Christopher Gjevre. Featuring architectural styles spanning early Victorian, Art Deco, Modernism and Deconstructivism, the downtown skyline reveals works of renowned designers such as Philip Johnson and C├ęsar Pelli. Minneapolis has unofficially gone by many nicknames over the course of time. "Mill City", suggesting a time when its riverfronts led the nation in flour production, and "City of Lakes", referring to the thirteen lakes within the city borders, have both endured over the course of time. More recently, as a dual tribute to the city's beloved Minnesota Vikings and its departed Artist, it is common to hear the mention of simply "The Purple City".
