Moorhead has many wonderful arts and cultural amenities for residents, businesses and visitors to enjoy. Here are a few public art projects available for all to experience:
2017 Oakport Our Tower Art
Moorhead Public Service repainted the Oakport water tower in Fall 2017 which includes a collaborative work of art by Stephen Dorsey and Jack Lunde two talented, local designers who submitted individual designs to an open call for art. The design is an interpretation of 'Life in Moorhead' and focuses on some of the key aspects that make our city unique, with special emphasis on the amazing wilderness available in the Oakport neighborhood. The artistic component of this project was lead and facilitated by professional artist, Su Legatt.
This project is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from Lake Region Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
2016 CenturyLink Moorhead Box Art
In 2016, CenturyLink commissioned seven works of art throught the CenturyLink Moorhead Box Art Project contest that invited creatives to submit original works of art with a technology theme for the chance to be selected to wrap a CenturyLink utility box.

2015 Sidewalk Art & Poetry Project
Your walk around Moorhead will now be inspired by more than green grass and trees. In 2016, nearly 100 designs were imprinted in sidewalks being replaced as part of road construction projects on Moorhead's major corridors.
In the spring of 2015, 302 works of art and poetry were submitted by Moorhead residents and students ages 4 to 77 in hopes to be selected and approved to be imprinted in sidewalks.
