Because you’re mine, I walk the line

Conceptual artist Marcus Young has drawn a 2 mile line from the MCAD Gallery through Minneapolis to the Mississippi River.. The work of art is titled “From Here To There And Beyond”.  Click here to see a video of the line.

By following the line out of the MCAD Gallery, you’re confronted with questions such as: where am I going? How far is this line going to take me?  How far am I willing to go? Is this a path, an idea, a trail? His two mile line connects to the 2,300 mile line that is the Mississippi. 

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, 
And sorry I could not travel both 
And be one traveler, long I stood 
And looked down one as far as I could 
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 

Then took the other, as just as fair, 
And having perhaps the better claim, 
Because it was grassy and wanted wear; 
Though as for that the passing there 
Had worn them really about the same,  

And both that morning equally lay 
In leaves no step had trodden black. 
Oh, I kept the first for another day! 
Yet knowing how way leads on to way, 
I doubted if I should ever come back.       

I shall be telling this with a sigh 
Somewhere ages and ages hence: 
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— 
I took the one less traveled by, 
And that has made all the difference. 

Robert Frost (1874–1963).  Mountain Interval.  1920
