Dakota County artists invited to submit work for fifth Community Art Exhibition

The Dakota County Public Art Citizen Advisory Committee is seeking original works of art for its fifth Community Art Exhibition. Themes of the exhibit are "New Perspectives of Historic Places in Dakota County" and "Your Favorite Building in Dakota County."
Artists 8 years old and older living in Dakota County are invited to submit original two-dimensional art that meets the committee's criteria outlined online. One entry per person per theme is allowed. Submissions are due Oct. 5.
The mission of the Dakota County Public Art Citizen Advisory Committee is to showcase and celebrate local talent while making local art more accessible to residents. This exhibition is the fifth open exhibition of work by local artists sponsored by the committee and its 20th overall. The committee will review submissions and make a recommendation to the Dakota County Board of Commissioners, which will make the final decision on which artwork is exhibited.

The six-month exhibit will be installed in November in various Dakota County buildings.
For a complete list of criteria that submissions must meet, visit and search art exhibit. To learn more, contact Jean Erickson at 651-438-4286 or
