Other Opportunities

In addition to the Arts Board's numerous grant opportunities, the Arts Board has a number of programs which fall under the category of other opportunities.

The Percent for Art in Public Places program acquires works of art to be exhibited in and around state buildings in areas regularly accessible to the general public.

Percent for Art secures artwork in two ways: by purchasing existing work; or by commissioning artists to create new work especially for the state building or site. Artwork is purchased with funds provided by Minnesota’s 1984 "Percent for Art" legislation, which encourages state building projects with construction or renovation budgets of $500,000 or more to add up to $100,000 or 1 percent of the total appropriation, whichever is less, of the total construction budget to purchase or commission original artwork for the site.

The Minnesota Presenters Network (MPN) is a consortium of presenting organizations in Minnesota ranging from small local community groups to large university and municipal presenters.
