New this year. The Eagan Art Festival is in the process of reviewing applications by artists seeking to work with the community on a temporary public art installation experience. The festival has several years of hands-on community project experience and anticipates participation by up to 600 children and 1500 adults/families. Thank you to all of the talented artists that have applied for this project. This page will be updated as the process continues.
