Twin Rivers is excited to announce a long awaited public art project that will have a dramatic impact on our City Center. In partnership with Ardent Mills and the City Center Partnership, Twin Rivers is contracting with Australian artist, Guido van Helten to paint the Ardent Mills silos in Old Town Mankato. We are fortunate to have been chosen by the artist to be included in a larger body of work he is creating in Midwestern communities around telling the story of how these communities were buildt by the agricultural industry and how that informs our American identity.
The design concept for Mankato will be developed over the course of several community engagement sessions and installation of all eight silos, on both sides, will take place in the fall of 2019.
Stay tuned for how you can be involved in the community engagement process for this exciting public art project.
