Help Maintain the Bryant Square Park Mosaic Panels


Mosaic Panel

Donate to Maintain the Mosaics

Five beautiful mosaic panels were unveiled at a celebration event on September 25, and they are now a permanent fixture on the exterior of the park recreation center after more than a year of work by CARAG, VOA Southwest Senior Center, artist Sharra Frank, Minneapolis Parks, and 200 volunteers from the community. This amazing community-building effort brought so many neighbors from different background together to jointly complete the artwork that has become an icon for CARAG and Bryant Square Park. Now we need your contribution to ensure the mosaics remain in great condition for years to come.
