New Nicollet Redevelopment

This public art project is part of the New Nicollet Redevelopment.

Project details


Partners: Public Works

Budget: $300,000

Status: Design Phase

The redevelopment seeks to connect and serve the people who will live on the former Kmart site. It will create new housing, businesses and green spaces in South Minneapolis.

The first phase will reconnect Nicollet Avenue, Cecil Newman Lane and Lake Street. This phase will result in new streets, a bridge, bikeway and pedestrian areas. Learn more

In the fall of 2023, we posted a Call for Artists and formed an independent selection panel. This panel consisted of: 

  • Community members
  • Project staff
  • Creative professionals

The panel reviewed artist's applications and selected Juliette Perine Myers and Lori Greene. They will conduct comprehensive research and community engagement. Their design will be informed by this work.
