The City of Minneapolis is pleased to invite emerging artists to apply to design public artworks for West 29th Street. This two-block project in South Minneapolis on 29th between Bryant and Lyndale Avenues will be the City’s first Shared Use Street. Five emerging Minnesota artists will be selected to participate in a two-day workshop and create design concepts. Their designs will be considered at a later date for future implementation. Selected artists may develop designs for a range of elements, including railings, pavement treatments, manhole covers, gateways, benches and bike racks.
