Community Overview: Established + Evolving

Burnsville is a vibrant, established and evolving community that is committed to meaningful relationships and experiences that meet the variety of needs in our community. Our commitment to creating places that enhance our community for years to come is supported by the City Council.

About the Project

Creating the opportunity for an interactive art installment on concrete barricades (jersey barriers) is in alignment with the City’s Economic Development Strategic Plan and the Integrated Marketing & Communications Plan. Both plans identify strategies to build upon the City’s distinct character as a regional draw by creating great experiences in our community.

The City of Burnsville is seeking proposals for original art on the jersey barriers that are permanently stored and used in Heart of the City and Nicollet Commons Park for various community events. The jersey barriers are currently plain concrete; however, the City intends to use the jersey barriers as a public art/placemaking opportunity.

Proposal Requirements

  • Include an artist bio or art team bios
  • Provide 3-5 examples of previous work
  • Include a simple sketch, image or design that communicates a vision for the proposed artwork (this may be adjusted based on community engagement)
  • Include a community engagement plan which should include how the artist(s) will convene partners to develop a design theme and how the artist will lead volunteers in the painting of all or some of the jersey barriers
