Widseth Sponsors CityArt in Mankato


Widseth is a sponsor of the 2024 CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour. CityArt is a community collection of 32 sculptures selected by a committee from artists around the country. They are placed on sidewalks and park spaces throughout downtown Mankato and North Mankato.  New sculptures are featured each year.

This is the third year Widseth is a sponsor for CityArt. Our sponsored sculpture for 2024 is Sweet Pops of Brilliance, by Craig Snyder. The steel and stainless steel sculpture, with a series of brightly colored circular forms mounted on twisting steel rods, is reminiscent of old fashion Saf-T-Pops candy.

The new sculptures were installed last weekend and welcomed with a CityArt Kick-Off party, tours, arts activities, music, and time with the artists to talk about their works.

Eric Lennartson, a Marketing Specialist at Widseth’s office in Mankato, is on the CityArt committee. Part of his responsibility of being on the committee, besides helping select the sculptures, is to do the actual installation of the sculptures and support other arts and placemaking activities throughout the year. Eric also led tours as part of the CityArt Kick-Off party festivities.
