UNITY Public Art Display

UNITY is an interactive public art project that examines how labels both help and hinder our ability to build unity as a nation and as a human race. The Minot Area Community Foundation (MACF) has teamed up with Minot State University (MSU) to bring this community art project to Minot.


UNITY is a circular arrangement of 32 poles in a large, outdoor area. Each pole is labeled with an identifier. For example, “I’m a parent,” “I speak English as a Second Language,” “I identify as LGBTQ,” etc. With yarn, participants tie to each pole with which they identify. A canopy of interconnectedness forms as more people participate. In the end, we see that we are all connected by something. This project celebrates the uniqueness of individuals and raises awareness of how labels impact our perception of and interactions with the world.


The UNITY public art project is currently taking place on the campus of MSU on the lawn between the Gordon B. Olson Library and Swain Hall and is open to the public. Hours each day vary and are as follows for the remainder of the week: Tuesday: Noon-8pm, Wednesday: Noon-6pm, Thursday & Friday: Noon-7pm and Saturday: 11am-4pm.
