Minneapolis: A leader in artistic utility boxes, painted intersections and more
Thanks to the City’s public art permitting program, Minneapolis is a national leader in supporting community efforts to apply art to utility boxes, intersections and other surfaces in the public right of way. This permitting program increases connections between artists, neighborhoods and residents through shared experiences created by physical elements in the public realm.
The public art permit program has helped applicants from neighborhoods all across the city turn hundreds of public art projects into reality. The permit process allows communities to create and install unique artistic designs for street furniture, intersections, utility boxes and so much more. Here’s more information on the Minneapolis public art permitting process and other opportunities to place artworks on City property or within the right of way.
