Courageous engagement for the future.
Inspiration abounds when everyone comes together to bring brand-new ideas and perspectives to the table. For the M, community partnerships are more than a side project–they lead the way for everything we do.

Partnerships set the stage for inclusivity, respect, and trust to rise to the surface as foundational tenets of true collaboration. We are in this together.

Artist Talk: Roosevelt Mansfield

Roosevelt says, "This is not about camera's about learning yourself; it's about not being afraid to try things; it's about using what you  have and letting your imagination come through."

Public Art

Public art plays a vital role in engaging communities in the built environment, expressing artistic values to a broad, constant audience, and beautifying the spaces where people spend their time. The M has long held a commitment to creating public art, both permanent and temporary. By engaging various partners in the process, creating public art provides an opportunity for connection and investment. Around downtown St. Paul, you will find many places that have been enlivened and brightened by public art projects created by many voices from in and around this beautiful capital city.
