Minneapolis has an official Artist in Residence
I stumbled on this the other day and thought it was really cool. The Minneapolis Community Planning and Economic Development Department hired Seitu Jones as the city's Artist in Residence for a 12-14 month term that started last year. His job is to design public art for the city's major transit corridors. I'm not sure if any of his design ideas have been implemented yet, but you can check them out in this presentation, here.
