The City of Minneapolis Art in Public Places program is pleased to invite artists of all disciplines to apply to collaboratively design and create new public artworks at Samatar Crossing, a new pedestrian and bike path linking the West Bank to Downtown.
Samatar Crossing is named in honor of the late Hussein Samatar, who became the first Somali immigrant elected to public office in Minnesota when he was elected the Minneapolis School Board in 2010. Samatar spent his life making connections between immigrant communities—especially the Somali community—and this bridge serves as a reminder of his work.
Up to three artists will be selected to design artworks with support from City staff and contractors. Artists of any artistic discipline are invited to apply. Artists do not need previous public art experience.
Informational Session for Artists: September 18, 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Brian Coyle Community Center.
Deadline to Apply: October 10 at 4:00 p.m.
