Sculptures, Murals, Mosiacs, Oh My!

We went to the University UNITED annual awards ceremony the other night and learned about a really cool organization called FORECAST Public Artworks. While they've got a national following, they do amazing things here in the Twin Cities. Each year they commission 8 - 10 to MN artists to create public artworks. They've also been focused specifically on bringing public art to University Avenue in St. Paul. Take a look at some of the funky pieces they've commissioned in the past.
