Public Art Saint Paul (PASP) is a private, non-profit organization working in partnership with the City of Saint Paul to imagine and create a more just, sustainable, and beautiful city. By placing artists in leading roles, we help shape public spaces, improve city systems, and deepen civic engagement.
Our artists research and help plan public projects and developments, such as Kellogg Mall and Mears Parks. We also commission, produce, and tend to public art—from Minnesota Rocks to 1,000 poems stamped in sidewalks to the remarkable Urban Flower Field. On top of that, we transform civic life through such innovations as the University Avenue Project, Pop Up Meeting, Western Sculpture Park, and CREATE: The Community Meal.
From small-scale gestures to large-scale events, Public Art Saint Paul creates more beautiful communities and fosters more inclusive civic life. Over 30 years, our work has become essential to the fabric of daily life in Saint Paul.
