Putting public art on the map

The city has unveiled a new tool on its website that allows residents to find examples of public art as commissioned by the Department of Planning and Economic Development (CPED).

Viewers can search for art in Southwest, South, Downtown, East and North Minneapolis. New pieces will be added as they’re put on display.

Southwest currently has four examples of public art in Whittier, East Calhoun, East Harriet and Armatage, ranging from a metal railing to an 18-foot bronze sculpture.
The tool is part of CPED’s Art in Public Places project, which has commissioned over three-dozen pieces.
