A Tour of the Newly-Restored Minnesota State Capitol Building

December 02, 2018
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Minnesota State Capitol Building, 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Saint Paul, MN
$10, proceeds to the Cass Gilbert Society

A tour of our beautiful, newly-restored capitol building, designed by noted architect Cass Gilbert. The tour is led by Ted Lentz, AIA, member of the Capitol Preservation Commission. Limited to 30. Followed by an informal gathering nearby for refreshments.

Coming a month after the potentially divisive 2018 mid-term elections, this guided tour of the restored state capitol will share specific decisions, spaces and important works of art with hopeful insights into Minnesota—a state that works. The restored and enhanced art and architecture of “The People’s House” provide an optimistic view for the future of our state and nation.

The Minnesota State Capitol, an incredible work of art since 1905, has all the original character of its significant spaces and places. The Legislative and Judicial chambers, hearing rooms, the key administrative offices and substantial public spaces have been augmented with over 40,000 square feet of new public space. These areas will be adapted to tell contemporary Minnesota stories.
Logistics

Parking is free on Sundays on the street and in state lots, including the Centennial Parking Ramp east of Cedar St. on Rev. Dr. MLK Jr Blvd.

We will meet at 1 PM at the base of the main (south) staircase. If the weather is inclement, we will meet in the carriageway below the staircase.

Participants are welcome to join an informal gathering nearby for refreshments.

Become a TCAN Member

Interested alumni organizations must meet each of the requirements listed below to qualify for membership in TCAN. All new applications are reviewed by the TCAN membership board. To learn more about our association or to request affiliation, please contact us.

New to the area? We invite interested alumni to contact their local affiliated clubs for membership and to receive upcoming TCAN event notifications. You're also invited to join our TCAN LinkedIn Group.

01/04

Nationally Ranked

We believe that the overall ranking number is a sufficient surrogate for a measure of quality. Therefore the college or university must have been nationally ranked as a top‐50 college or university, according to U.S. News and World Report, within each of the last three years.

02/04

Located Outside of Minnesota

TCAN was founded as a support group for university alumni organizations from colleges located primarily outside the Midwest. A geographical eligibility criterion ensures that alumni groups with a significant membership base will not dominate TCAN events.

03/04

Undergrad Population of Less than 10,000

We believe that the size of a college's undergraduate program offers a surrogate measure of not only the quality of the school, but also the type of cultural experience that embodies a program of liberal arts education and instills a love of learning.

04/04

Alumni Org. must be a Bona Fide Club

We feel it is important that all member clubs are sanctioned, well‐established, and able to contribute to the Network upon admission. Therefore all organizations seeking membership must typically have at least 10 members and 2 years of operating history.
