Public Art Opportunities in Northfield this summer!

This summer there are two exciting opportunities for artists and aspiring artists in Northfield.

Artists on Main Street

For the fourth year, we are thrilled to announce another Artists on Main Street program. This year’s theme is Meet Me at the River and artists are eligible for up to $5,000 in funding. Artists of all types are welcome – painters, sculptors, musicians, dancers, and more! Learn more online about the full program guidelines. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund and residents of the City of Northfield through the Percent for the Arts Initiative.


Hispanic Heritage Celebration Banners

The Northfield Arts and Culture Commission, in partnership with the Friends of Downtown Northfield, is hosting a competition for artists to design a new downtown banner in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. The banners will be displayed on light poles along Division Street in time for Northfield’s sixth annual Hispanic Heritage Celebration on September 15, remaining for all of Hispanic Heritage Month and into November. Learn more about the full guidelines online. 


Applications for both opportunities will be closing on June 23, 2023.

Listen to Assistant City Planner Revee Needham, Library Director Natalie Draper, and Mayor Rhonda Pownell speak about these opportunities on KYMN.
