The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

City of North St. Paul Public Art Report.

Davis, Sarah, Katie Loberg, Kelli Theiler, and Saymoukda Vongsay.

LS 5100: Design Thinking, spring 2014. (Instructor Virajita Singh,College of Design)

North Saint Paul is looking to engage residents of all ages and demographics by better incorporating public art into the community, instilling a greater sense of community pride. The community once had an Arts Council that has gone dormant in the last few years, and is hoping to re-engage the community and revitalize the downtown and neighborhood districts through public art.

In fall 2013, students in an Urban Planning course focused on public participation processes designed a participation process for developing a public art plan, proposed a strategy for facilitating long-term community engagement around public art, and identified strategies to reengage the previous city arts council. See CURA publications RCP-058 and RCP-059 to view the reports from that course

In spring 2014, students in a course in Liberal Studies used a design thinking approach to identify strategies for engaging local residents around public art. This is their report.
