In 2016, CenturyLink commissioned seven works of art throught the CenturyLink Moorhead Box Art Project contest that invited creatives to submit original works of art with a technology theme for the chance to be selected to wrap a CenturyLink utility box.  CLICK HERE for brochure featuring the selected works of art and the location.


2015 Sidewalk Art & Poetry Project

Poetry stamp near Rourke - web   

Your walk around Moorhead will now be inspired by more than green grass and trees.  In 2016, nearly 100 designs were imprinted in sidewalks being replaced as part of road construction projects on Moorhead's major corridors.

In the spring of 2015, 302 works of art and poetry were submitted by Moorhead residents and students ages 4 to 77 in hopes to be selected and approved to be imprinted in sidewalks.

Walking Map:  A preliminary walking map of Art and Poetry stamp locations has been developed.
