Public Art Framework

The Public Art Framework will guide public officials, architects, landscape architects, artists, engineers, and the public in creating a high quality, socially relevant and meaningfully inclusive artistic environment in and around the I-35W/Lake Street Transit Station Area. The Framework is intended to be implemented incrementally as the I-35W Transit Access Project is designed and constructed. Elements of public art can be infrastructure based, functional objects, temporary, or site specific. On October 24, 2013, the PAC unanimously approved the following resolution:

The Project Advisory Committee (PAC) supports the Public Art Framework for the I-35W Transit/Access Project, acknowledging that issues related to funding and maintenance need to be resolved.

Ten public art program themes have been identified:

  1. Landscape Features
  2. City History
  3. Neighborhood History
  4. Community Portraits
  5. Cultural Objects and Craft Traditions
  6. Wayfinding
  7. Sustainability
  8. Artist Integrated Space
  9. Light
  10. Movement

“Areas of Opportunity” for public art at the transit station and surrounding area are:

  • Bridges and Walls – MnDOT
  • Transit Station – Metro Transit
  • The Plaza – Metro Transit and/or City of Minneapolis
  • The Green Crescent – City of Minneapolis/Mpls. Park Board and/or Hennepin County
