The City of Fargo envisions a livable community where integrating public art into city initiatives, neighborhood revitalization efforts and private developments is a norm; where every citizen, worker and visitor in Fargo has the opportunity to freely experience quality art and creative expression as part of their daily lives.
Established in 2015, the Arts and Culture Commission is committed to integrating art into public spaces, supporting local artists, and bringing quality art and creative expression to the Fargo community. The Commission is dedicated to citywide public art programming that promotes public art, generates public- private relationships, supports established and emerging artists, and embraces equity and cultural diversity.
Additionally, the Arts and Culture Commission makes recommendations to the City Commission regarding the commissioning and placement of public art owned by the city, and works to encourage the display of public art by all citizens, developers, and property owners.
