City of Minneapolis Art in Public Places
Artist-Designed Public Drinking Fountains Public Art Project
In 1858 the people of Minneapolis voted to become a town, with our first Town Council meeting on July 20, 1858. It was the river that attracted people to this place and we celebrate the role water has played in our history. Water is a building block of our past and an essential resource for our future.
In honor of the citys 150 th anniversary, the City of Minneapolis Art in Public Places Program and the Department of Public Works are commissioning ten public art drinking fountains to be installed at different locations in the City. The vision of this project is to celebrate the role water has played in Minneapolis history and to foster a commitment to honoring and protecting water as fundamental to all life.
