Two-Dimensional Art at Currie Park

Two-Dimensional Art at Currie Park Image

As Currie Park undergoes renovations and improvements, The City of Minneapolis invites public artists to apply to work with residents of the Cedar Riverside area to create a new two-dimensional public artwork.

Currie Park occupies land sandwiched between two light rail lines (the Green Line and Blue Line), I-35W, and 15th Avenue. It is one of the very few green spaces in the densest neighborhood in Minneapolis outside of downtown, and heavily used despite its relatively small size. Today, there are more than eight thousand residents who call this area home, 50% of whom are of East African descent including Somali, Oromo, Ethiopian, Eritrean, and more. Other residents include, but are not limited to, Korean, Iraqi, Russian, and Turkish Americans.

The City is seeking an artist/artist team to design and fabricate an approximately 370 square foot, two-dimensional public artwork for the new park building at Currie Park. Artists with a proven track record for working in and with the community and creating permanent two-dimensional works are invited to apply. It is unlikely that the project will result in a mural. Mosaics and other two-dimensional artworks will be considered.

The goals of the project include:

This project is currently in the artist selection phase. The deadline for beginning the application process was February 27th. The application process is now closed.
