Art Crawl

 Beauty is where you find it.  Review the website for public art in Minneapolis ( ).  Then design a leisurely one-hour walk for someone else to take, with the goal of experiencing the beauty of Mankato.


Your tour may include “objets d’art,” objects intentionally created and sited to capture timeless beauty.  It may also include “Arts & Crafts,” decorative elements designed into objects for use.  It may include “folk art,” expressions of beauty produced from other than “high” inspiration.  It may include “found objects,” beauty discovered, as it were, by accident.


Take a friend on your tour, discussing what you see and what they see as you go along.  Better yet, take several friends and make it a symposium.


Is there beauty in the city?  What is the role of art in producing it?
