2018 Midway Public art Projects
In 2018, the Midway Public Art Working Group teamed up with Hamline Elementary School to again support a talented emerging artist, Hamline University alumnae, Sarah Lentz. This mural was the culmination of months of hands-on teaching work between the artist and Hamline Elementary School students.

2017 Midway public art projects
The Midway Public Art Working Group, Midway Murals, and Hamline University helped lead 2 new projects in 2017. The first is a gorgeous mural restoration project of Picnic at Newell Park, a 30 year-old mural by local artist Chris Baird at the corner of Snelling and Englewood Avenues (see video below). The second is an exciting new mural, just across the street at 742 Snelling Avenue, by talented local emerging artist Ilana Budenosky called Stop Requested.
