Forecast connects the ideas and energy of artists with the needs and opportunities of communities.
Art in Our Everyday Lives
For 35 years Forecast Public Art has been fueling a national and international groundswell in how we interact and engage in art in our everyday lives—supporting artists and communities in the creation of art that inspires interaction, pride, vitality and new ways of seeing everyday places in provocative and compelling ways.
Forecast was one of the nation’s first nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing the field of public art. And today, they remain at the forefront of public art innovation, thanks to support from donors like you.
Just look around you—the Central Corridor, photo essays in storefronts, public murals, poetic spaces and soaring sculptures are just a few of the hundreds of projects credited to Forecast’s leadership.
“All people should share openly in the delight, challenge and warmth of art. Forecast helps get us there.” - Mayor of Minneapolis, R.T. Rybak
