The Capitol Art Exhibit Advisory Committee was established by the 2018 Legislature to advise and make recommendations to the State Capitol Preservation Commission regarding art exhibits to be displayed in specific spaces in the Minnesota Capitol.  

To develop these recommendations, the committee will receive proposals from Minnesota artists, art organizations, and other individuals and prepare a list of recommended art exhibits for consideration by the commission.

In accordance with MN Statutes 15B.32, art exhibits displayed in the State Capitol should tell Minnesota stories and engage people to:

  • reflect on Minnesota history;
  • understand Minnesota government;
  • recognize the contributions of Minnesota's diverse peoples;
  • inspire citizen engagement; and
  • appreciate the varied landscapes of Minnesota.

Preference will be given to artists currently living in Minnesota or living in Minnesota at the time portrayed. The selection process will ensure that a wide range of artists have a chance to be considered and that, over time, the art reflects the contributions of artists of various demographic backgrounds, including age, disability, gender, and racial and ethnic identity.
