City of Hopkins, Minnesota
Through innovative public outreach and a collaborative design process, The Artery received endorsements and grants from multiple agencies and jurisdictions, helping the city fund the majority of construction and spur private economic development.
The Artery integrates interactive public art, innovative technology, a two-way cycle track, and educational elements of storytelling and cultural history all within the public realm, making this a prime destination along the proposed SWLRT Green Line. Few projects bring out such positive collaboration to create something unique, yet mutually successful on multiple fronts.
