The New Ulm Downtown Action Team, a community committee supported by the Chamber of Commerce and Heart of New Ulm, is seeking qualified artist(s) or artist team to create a mural in the city’s historic downtown at 1st North and North Minnesota Streets. The artwork will be displayed on the building’s exterior wall of the Nuvera building for visitors in the downtown area. Your artwork, whether it be graphic design or a physical painting, will be in a framed 20’ x 80’ art medium. The artwork will not be directly on the building. The artwork will be printed on billboard material that will then be placed in a frame.


There will be an initial review by the mural committee. The artists selected from the initial review will then be invited to present renderings and detailed work proposals, including project timelines, and a budget. The selected artist(s) will receive a grant to assist with project-related expenses, such as supplies, materials, liability insurance, and artist’s fees.


We are ready to make this a reality in New Ulm – but first, we need your help! To learn more and apply please visit  If you have questions, please contact the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce at (507) 233-4300.
