Arts Alliance and Main Street Program Partner to Install Public Art

Arts Alliance

The Arts Alliance of Greater Lake Mills, and the Lake Mills Main Street Program are partnering  in a project to aesthetically improve the parking lot alley area between Lake Street and Water Street through the placement of public art.

It is the mission of both organizations to celebrate the culture and history of Lake Mills.

The Arts Alliance has installed three pieces of art for the public: the Grist Mill Fence, the Spirit of Lake Mill Arch, and the Ball Sculptures in the planters. The Main Street Program has funded and supported numerous facade grants. The back parking lot alley area, centrally located between Commons Park, The Municipal Building, Ford Court, and Rock Lake, is a visual extension of the natural and architectural beauty that is already enjoyed here in Lake Mills.  The intention is to choose art that would further enhance the landscape, and be appropriate in theme and style to what already exists in this area.

We will be funding this project through grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board and the National Endowment for the Arts, corporate and community fund raising, and their own resources. 

Main Street LogoIt is important to both organizations that the community is involved in the planning, designing and implementation of the art. This project was begun by consulting the businesses and building owners who would be directly affected. The organizations are meeting with fifteen community groups to seek ideas, opinions, memories, historical information, and eventually the participation of the community in the creation of the art.

Ideas, suggestions, and comments can be shared on both organization’s websites, and through a comment box at the Fargo Public Library. Individuals may also contact Katie Otto at   920 648-6721, or Leslie DeMuth at
920 390-9341.
