Twins, 5 local artists partner for T-shirt giveaway series

Five Twin Cities artists are getting the chance to showcase their Minnesota Twins-inspired designs at Target Field.

As part of the “T-Shirt Tuesday Artist Series,” the Twins will highlight one local artist for one Tuesday game each month, starting in May. The first 5,000 fans at each of those games will receive a one-of-a-kind T-shirt with an iconic Twins logo reimagined by a local artist.
