Doing Things Downtown
Silo Mural Project
Our latest public art initiative is our largest yet – literally and figuratively. Australian artist Guido van Helten will create a one of his larger-than-life murals on the Ardent Mills silos in City Center Mankato’s Old Town District, right in the heart of the downtown.
We have a number of events and programs going on this summer and are looking for an arts / business / communications student to help with logistics, marketing, and community engagement.
