What’s the Future of Phillips Gateway Cultural Mosaic Art?

Made By Rafala Green and Hundreds of Youth Artists 30 Years Ago at Franklin and Chicago

The viability of the Phillips Gateway Plaza, at the NE corner of Peavey Park, is now under review by the City of Minneapolis, which is responsible for its maintenance and upkeep.


If you have thoughts about the Plaza or public art in general, please fill out the city’s survey to help determine its future.


If you have questions related to this survey or project please contact Sarah Linnes-Robinson, Contractor, MPLS Art in Public Places, at sarah.linnesrobinson@minneapolismn.gov. Scan the QR code to go to the survey.

The alley newspaper, June, 2023 featured an interview with Edric Knight, a community member involved in the construction of the Phillips Gateway Touchstone Plaza. In that interview, he reminisced about its history in the community and the artist behind it, Rafala Green.
