In 2017, we partnered with ACLU of Minnesota to create a document on artist freedom of speech rights, that was included as part of the Resist feature article in the print version of Public Art Review issue 56. These rights remain valuable today, especially for those artists working in public for the first time.

This toolkit provides guidance on how artists and public art administrators can keep arts projects active and moving forward, even as we physically distance during the pandemic.


The Public Art Library maintains a non-circulating collection of more than 2,000 print, digital, and multimedia materials from the field of public art. This extensive library of public art materials was previously housed at our Saint Paul office. In 2021, the collection was donated to Juxtaposition Arts. The public art library will reopen when JXTA’s new facility’s construction is complete [slated for fall 2022]. In the interim, you can view the catalog online, below.
