Returning Art

During Fall 2015, all of the public art was removed from Nicollet Mall in anticipation of its reconstruction. Many of these works, originally installed in 1992 by Minnesota artists who were establishing their reputations, will reappear on the Mall along with the most significant public commission created by George Morrison, one of our state’s most esteemed artists. In 2018, Morrison’s granite carpet entitled Tableau, A Native American Portrait will return to the Mall. The first artworks returning include Shadows of Spirit by Seitu Jones, Ta-coumba Aiken and Soyini Guyton, and Kate Burke’s beloved Hail Minnesota manhole covers.
