St. Louis Park is dedicated to promoting and integrating arts, culture and community aesthetics in all city initiatives. A few of those initiatives include public art, sidewalk poetry program, the Utility Box Wrap program and the St. Louis Park Arts & Culture Grant.
Arts & Culture Grant
The Arts & Culture Grant program is a joint project of the City of St. Louis Park, the St. Louis Park Community Foundation and St. Louis Park Friends of the Arts. The program makes grant dollars available every year for music, visual arts, theater, film, multimedia, dance and other art projects.
Applications are now be accepted for 2020 grants through Sept. 30.

The 2019 terms are:
- Jan. 1 — April 30
