Murals & Public Art
You’ll find several murals here in Minneapolis like this one here…
“The Times They Are A-Changin’”
We’ll start with what is sure to go down in history as one of the most famous murals in Minneapolis: Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra’s Bob Dylan mural. Completed in just two weeks in 2015, the three-part mural depicts Dylan in the early, mid and current era of his career, with a hypnotic kaleidoscope background. You can’t miss it. It’s a massive 160 feet wide and five stories tall. The piece also has lyrics from the song of the same title.
Location: 5th Street and Hennepin Ave
You have several other murals, including one of Prince.
