The Public Art program provides funds for the completion of well planned, permanent or temporary works of public art that are accessible to the general public without cost. Temporary public art projects must have a significant public impact and permanent, publicly accessible documentation.
All requests must have a minimum of 25% matching funds. There is no maximum request amount but funds are limited. Contact the CMAB for the current program budget. Public Art funds are provided through Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
Applicants must serve Region 7W residents and be located within the Minnesota counties of Benton, Sherburne, Stearns, or Wright.
