Hopkins, MN – The City of Hopkins Public Art Committee recently selected Edina, Minn. artist Danny Saathoff to commission a piece of art for the new entrance vestibule at Hopkins City Hall.
The City’s mission and vision statement relating to inclusion, respect and diversity inspired Saathoff’s design.
“My piece, Intersections, represents the entities being depicted as individuals, but it also shows the areas of commonality between the individual entities,” said Saathoff. “This represents the good in our communities and the areas that should be highlighted and celebrated.”
The piece of art, designed to be viewed from all angles, is planned to have multiple lighting components, both internally and externally, to offer a variety of lighting options for the space.
“Intersections will be the perfect fit to welcome our community to City Hall and a prominent artistic component to showcase the City’s commitment to the arts,” said Hopkins Assistant City Manager Ari Lenz.
City Hall is currently undergoing a renovation to add a larger main entrance, where Intersections will be featured, and upgrade the lobby, council chambers, conference rooms and staff areas. The public will be able to view Saathoff’s piece at the Grand Reopening of City Hall this fall.
