City Center Partnership
CityArt (CA) grew out of an Aesthetics & Livability Committee project and works to enhance the quantity, quality and prominence of public art in the City Center. Key projects include:

- CityArt On the Go (2013-present)
An initiative to place public art on public infrastructure throughout the City Center.
- Public Sculpture Sales (2011-present)
Sales of individual sculptures from the CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour are facilitated by the City Center Partnership and can remain in a private collection or (if approved by the municipality) donated to the public.
- Mankato on the Move (2012-present)
A joint initiative by the Blue Earth County Historical Society, City Center Partnership, City of Mankato and Visit Mankato; Mankato on the Move is an audio tour service providing audio information at key destinations.
