Brief Description

The City of Bloomington in partnership with Artistry invite experienced public artists/teams to submit qualifications for the design and installation of a unique mural and lighting feature for the newly constructed 106th Street/35W bridge underpass.

Priority will be given to artists/teams that have mural and/or creative lighting feature experience. Applicants are welcome from the state of Minnesota and should have an understanding of or experience with murals and public art installations that address the climate and ecosystem specific to Minnesota and this site in particular.
