Public Art

The McMinnville Downtown Association Committee for Public Art (MDACPA) was established in 2007 with the goal of placing quality art pieces in public places to give citizens and visitors to historic downtown McMinnville an opportunity to interact with art as an integral part of the design of the community. The committee’s efforts to date have resulted in the installation of nineteen pieces in the McMinnville Downtown Historic District. Of these pieces, more than half have been purchased by individuals and donated to the City for its permanent collection.
