Art in Public Places

For over 25 years, Art in Public Places has enhanced public spaces in Minneapolis by integrating public art into City infrastructure and development projects. It is a program the Department of Community Planning and Economic Development Planning Division and is overseen by the City’s Public Arts Administrator. More than six dozen projects have been commissioned through Art in Public Places. Information on a number of them is featured on the Public Art Map. A current major initiative of Art in Public Places is the John Biggers Seed Project.

Art and Public Places works with the Minneapolis Arts Commission to develop and implement City of Minneapolis Public Art Policies (pdf) in several areas, including: site and artist selection, maintenance; gifts and loans, deaccession, and community involvement.
