Public Art Advisory Committee

The purpose of the City of West Fargo Public Art Advisory Committee is to review and recommend public art installations and performances on city-owned public property to the City Commission. This newly-formed Committee also assists city staff in identifying ordinances or procedures that can be streamlined or enhanced to better promote public art within city limits. Finally, the Committee seeks ways to engage the West Fargo community to improve the quality of life for the city’s residents through the promotion of public art.

ColorFest 2021

Ahead of the demolition of Sheyenne Street as a part of the Urban Reconstruction Project, the City of West Fargo allowed businesses and residents to create temporary public street art. 

Businesses painted logos and taglines, and residents were invited to participate in a paint by number to create pieces of art in downtown intersections.
