Public art is one of the fastest growing forms of artistic expression in our community.  

Twin Rivers is here to help guide artists; to make their ideas become a reality. Twin Rivers works with the City of Mankato and North Mankato on creating public art policy and procedure in order to educate and streamline the process for artists. Twin Rivers also facilitates many calls for art for each city and other public/private partnerships. 

get started on your public art idea.


Twin Rivers facilitates several large scale public art programs through CityArt, a partnership of Twin Rivers Council for the Arts and the City Center Partnership, Greater Mankato’s downtown association. The goals of CityArt are to provide free and accessible public art for the community’s enjoyment and help revitalize our neighborhoods through public art.

Current CityArt programming includes the CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour, CityArt On the Go, and the Public Art Tour. For more information on all CityArt programs, visit the official CityArt website.
