Smart Art Program
Exhibiting through January 2016, 17 local professional and emerging artists will be displaying 42 works of fine art through the Minneapolis Convention Center hallways.
Minneapolis has a wealth of creativity and artistic talent. The SmartArt Rotating Art Program introduces visitors of the Minneapolis Convention Center to rich artistic offerings from local visual artists living and working in Minneapolis.
Artwork was collected through an open Call for Artists with specific parameters in alignment with the City of Minneapolis Public Art Policies & Procedures Guide and the Minneapolis Arts Commission Selection Process. All images received were reviewed by a committee of panelists who were appointed by the Office of Ward 7 Councilwoman Lisa Goodman, Citizens for a Loring Park Community, and the Minneapolis Arts Commission.
ART FORCE, an art consulting firm located in the heart of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, partnered with the Minneapolis Convention Center to develop and implement this program.
