While the intangible benefits are easily recognized, the infusion of public art into a community has proven economic impact. Time and again in cities like Brooklyn, St. Paul, and even Fargo, we have seen that when art is embraced by the city and its business, people embrace in return, creating new economic development and strength.

Public art inspires pride and a sense of community.
Public art attracts and retains families.
Public art revitalizes economies.
Public art is a great first step toward making Moorhead even more fantastic.

Check out this video on how Saint Paul is using their sidewalks to enrich their community! 

The Moorhead Sidewalk Poetry and Art Project is not only a celebration of our citizens creative talents but an opportunity for the city to aesthetically enhance and continue downtown revitalization. Placed throughout the downtown area and southward on eighth street, these works will entice students and residents to walk a little further to make creative discoveries and reconnect with their city's landmarks and businesses; providing a new life and energy to the district.

This week the first stamps were laid into wet cement in Moorhead. It's exciting to see this project begin on the anniversary of it's approval by the Moorhead City Council.

It is with such gratitude that we are thinking of those in our community who made this project possible. To the nearly 100 donors, each representing our community members, residents, and businesses-- thank you!

This project is a celebration of our citizens talents and a testament to power of community, all while being a wonderful opportunity to aesthetically enhance and revitalize our beloved downtown.
