The Fargo Project

The City of Fargo is currently working on a pilot project to transform a neighborhood drainage basin into a community commons that will reflect the cultural vibrancy of the Fargo community. Meanwhile, the basin will maintain its function as a storm water collection site.The effort is made possible through partnerships with ecological artist Jackie Brookner (1945-2015) and funding from ArtPlace America, the City of Fargo, Fargo Park District, The Kresge Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Our Town, and the North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund.
