The Minneapolis area has a wide range of public art all around the city. Some, we walk by each and every day and don’t notice. Other pieces are a bit more famous. I bet you didn’t know there are approximately 300 individual pieces of public art to visit in Minneapolis! Yes 300 just in Minneapolis, then if you add on the surrounding suburbs plus St. Paul that number jumps even more.
It doesn’t matter if you’re from here or just visiting, walking around the neighborhoods can be a great way to learn something new. The City, and Park Board recently launched interactive maps for self-guided public art tours. There are six different, self-guided tours to check out. The best part is, it doesn’t cost anything to walk around.
You can pick any of the six tours here on their website, then follow the map and learn a little about the art around Minneapolis.
