Scenes from Past POSTERS Shows

2021 Virtual Presale Sets New Records

In 2021, and for the second year in a row, you helped us set records: People from 24 states purchased 837 posters and together raised over $36,000 for Twin Cities artists and community parks in Minneapolis. Thank you!

Over 40 local artists were selected to create original art inspired by our community’s much-loved parks and the people, plants, and animals that share them. We kicked-off this year’s event with a presale on Saturday, October 23, and sold an opening-day record 435 posters.

2020 Virtual Show & Sale

On October 17, 2020, Minneapolis arts and parks came together online for the 5th annual Posters for Parks Show and “virtual cocktail hour,” kick-starting a week-long celebration and sharing of parks-inspired design. And after all the posters were counted, it was the most successful poster show yet. A grand total of 811 posters found their way into the hands and onto the walls of fine folks from northern Minnesota to Atlanta, GA, and from Portland, OR, to Brooklyn, NY, along the way generating more than $33,000 to support the Minneapolis Parks Foundation’s People for Parks Fund and local artists.

Earlier Events (2016-2019)

From 2016-2019, one-night-only in-person Posters for Parks events sold a combined 1,700+ posters and generated more than $20,000 to support community driven parks projects and programs.
