Public Art at Hi-Lake Plaza

Call for Artists: Public Art Opportunity at the future Hiawatha-Lake Plaza in South Minneapolis

Corcoran Neighborhood Organization, with the support of the McKnight Foundation and working with the Lake Street Council, is seeking artists to propose art projects that will be integrated into the design of a new public plaza to be constructed by Hennepin County and managed by Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.

The plaza will be constructed in 2021 and will be located between the Hiawatha Avenue-Lake Street light rail station and the Hennepin County Service Center at 2215 E. Lake St. The plaza will be anchored by new mixed-income apartments. The Midtown Farmers Market will utilize the plaza two days per week. See the attached additional information to learn more about this development project.

We are seeking an artist or artists to design and fabricate permanent or semi-permanent projects that will be integrated into the fabric of the future Hi-Lake plaza. Projects can either be stand-alone pieces, or design elements that are incorporated into planned plaza infrastructure. Planned plaza infrastructure that could potentially incorporate artistic design includes: a stage, climbing structures, bike racks, pavers, seating and fencing.
