Bde Maka Ska Public Art Project

Bde Maka Ska Public Art Base Map

Partners: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Budget: $250,000

Artists: Angela Two Stars, Mona Smith and Sandy Spieler were selected from a group of 16 applicants to work together on this project. Plans for this project include:

This public art project is in conjunction with construction improvements envisioned in the master plan for Bde Maka Ska and Lake Harriet. It focuses on creating a gathering space and public art project that honors Mahpiya Wicasta/Cloud Man and reveals and celebrates the history of Heyata Otunwe, a village located on Bde Maka Ska from 1829-1839. The theme of the design is “Story Awakening” with an intention to honor and educate visitors about the broader history and culture of the Dakota and other Indigenous peoples who frequented and resided in this area over time.
