Long Range Planning: Public Art
Public artworks contribute to livability and vibrancy of public places in the City and they help attract visitors too. They build pride in community and cultural heritage while inspiring discussion about issues affecting quality of life and future aspirations. The process of developing public artworks builds the capacity of artists and community leaders to shape City spaces and neighborhoods.
For over 30 years, the City of Minneapolis has enriched the lives of citizens and visitors by integrating public art into city planning, services design and infrastructure. The City’s Public Art Program features:
- New Commissions through the Art in Public Places program
- The conservation and maintenance of the City’s collection of over 60 works located in all parts of Minneapolis
- Support to other departments and agencies developing public facilities, infrastructure, and public art projects
- Permits to neighborhoods and community groups for art projects in the public realm
