Creative City Challenge seeks creative proposals for interactive public art at The Commons

The City of Minneapolis Creative City Challenge’s sixth annual competition for Minnesota artists, architects and designers is open until Nov. 17 for proposals. The winning temporary, destination artwork will be sited at The Commons, the new 4.2 acre public green space and an anchor in the Downtown East area transformation.

The Creative City Challenge is conceived as a showcase for local creative talent: Minnesota-resident architects, landscape architects, urban designers, planners, engineers, scientists, artists, students and individuals of all backgrounds to create and install a temporary, destination artwork, which acts as a sociable and participatory platform for four months. Three finalists will receive $2,500 to create full proposals. The winning Creative City Challenge proposal will receive a $50,000 commission to execute the project.

In 2018, the Creative City Challenge takes its cue from the site of installation: The Commons. We invite you to explore through installation and programming how creative placemaking can help invigorate The Commons as a site of commonality. We are particularly interested in proposals that use the space of The Commons to encourage engagement, both individually and as a community.

The Creative City Challenge is presented by the Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy Program of the City of Minneapolis in partnership with Northern Lights.mn and The Commons.

Information session Oct. 17
