Guido van Helten Silo Art

Downtown Mankato plays host to art of monumental proportions.   Artist Guido van Helten painted the mural on the Ardent Mills silos in 2020.  Each Silo is 135 feet tall.   One side of the artwork is visible from Hwy 169, but it’s worth a stop to see the entire work.  More details can be found on the Mankato City Art Webpage.

Murals of Sauk Centre

The Murals of Sauk Center is an on going project.   Artist Roger Reinardy is responsible for their creation. According to Visit Sauk Centre’s website, Reinardy had a “lifetime career as a commercial artist who designed beautifully artistic counted cross stitch and needlepoint projects. But when he moved home to Sauk Centre, he began to expand his horizons” All of the Murals are within walking distance if you park downtown.
