Surrounded on three sides by the Mississippi, with dramatic bluff views of the surrounding cityscape, the West Side is energized by its diverse cultures and enriched by one of the largest collections of public art in the Twin Cities, ranging from murals that tell neighborhood stories to sculpture by nationally recognized artists.
