Regina Flanagan

Welcome to the website and blog about the new public art being created for Nicollet Mall! To introduce myself – I’m Regina Flanagan, local artist, landscape architect, public art administrator and writer who will be your guide over the next two years, as the artwork is designed, fabricated, installed and dedicated.

I’m one of four artists chosen by the Minneapolis Arts Commission through a nationwide open call and interviews. My role is to curate and integrate the public art being created by Ned Kahn, Tristan Al-Haddad and Blessing Hancock. Visit their bio pages to learn more about them and their past work. Over the next several months, I will be posting their design proposals under the Artist’s Process tab and later, progress photos from their studios.

Check out What’s Happening Now for my most current blog post, and also to learn about community events and activities with the artists.

Sign up here to be in the loop and receive a notice when I’ve posted something new.

I’m honored to have been selected for this unique role, and the opportunity to develop content and manage this blog. The Nicollet Mall construction project has its own web site – why not a venue to talk about the creation of public art for the Mall? I know that you are curious about it! Please join us on the journey.
