The Public Arts Commission leads a community-wide coalition in the development of a vibrant cultural and artistic life for those who live in or visit Greater Grand Forks.
The Public Arts Commission is committed to shaping a cultural identity authentic to the region because arts and culture make a unique contribution to quality of life and a strong economy.
PAC facilitates the creation and implementation of public art projects in Grand Forks, and ensures that public art projects reflect community values and priorities.
Artists from across the country were invited to submit qualifications for a public art installation to be developed on 42nd Street. We are pleased to announce that over 80 artists have submitted examples of high-quality public artwork. This artwork serves as an example of the potential that each artist could bring to developing an artwork unique to Grand Forks. The submitted qualifications will be reviewed by a selection committee who will choose up to five artists, each of whom will be invited to submit a proposal for artwork specific to the site. Check out some of the submissions below!
