Mears Park


In collaboration with the City of St. Paul Department of Parks and Recreation and the Lowertown Redevelopment Corporation, the artist was responsible for a complete redesign of Mears Park, a historic two-acre urban park in the historic Lowertown district of downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, near the Mississippi River. Art, as something easily identifiable, was subjugated so that the design of the park is, in itself, a work of art responding to community needs and desires. Mears Park was designated one of the best urban parks in America built in the last 100 years by the American Society of Landscape Architects in 2000.
