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.
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.
