RED WING MURAL

3rd & Plum Streets

This memorable wall was created for a city-wide celebration of Red Wing's history. With the wear of time, the wall has recently been repaired and mural sections repainted. Now it looks as good as new, telling the history of Red Wing.

Maps for the Red Wing Sculpture Crawl are available at Depot Gallery. When you visit Red Wing, you will find art in the community, artists in the community and opportunities to enjoy art.


 

POLLINATOR PARK’s “FIRST FLIGHT”

Main & Broad Streets

  First Flight is central to the park. The 7 foot high sculpture was created by Jeff Barber. Above shows his concept piece. The site of the former Taco Johns at Main & Broad Streets is part of a transformation to create this gateway to downtown Red Wing.

Red Wing Arts approached the City of Red Wing with the concept of creating an exceptional park dedicated to providing a refuge for pollinators - bees, butterflies, etc. The park would be a focal point of the entrance to both downtown Red Wing and the riverfront.

Working with Goodhue County Master Gardeners, Scenic Spaces (landscape design) and the City, Red Wing Arts spearheaded the development of Pollinator Park. Many of the native plants and grasses were planted in November 2015. The remainder of the work was resumed spring of 2016.

The park features walkways, benches, a tribute sculpture and an information kiosk. Education is an important component of Pollinator Park.

 

"We believe that helping people see what can be done to support a habitat for pollinators will encourage them to create a habitat in their own yards.”

- Former executive director, Dan Guida
