As part of the Midway Murals project during the summer of 2015, which brought four beautiful murals to Snelling Ave, Hamline Midway Coalition founded a neighborhood public art working group with the help and leadership of Midway Murals project organizer, Jonathan Oppenheimer. In addition to overseeing maintenance an upkeep of the four murals along Snelling, The Midway Public Art Working Group hopes to continue the evolution of Hamline Midway as a hub for public and community-oriented art in St. Paul.
The mission of the Public Art Working Group is to “enhance livability, pride, interaction and vibrancy through public art in the Midway community, in ways that foster dialogue and connection.”
