IMS Display Wall
AIA Minnesota Display Wall at International Market Square

The International Market Square sees thousands of visitors each year.
AIA Minnesota member firms have the opportunity to provide 22.5 x 22.5 x .25 inch display boards to be featured on a wall in the IMS lobby on a rotating basis.
Firms may present a project (commercial or residential) in an extended format (four display boards) on a wall in the heavily trafficked atrium of International Market Square.
