HERITAGE GARDEN AND AMPHITHEATER
COMMUNITY ENGAGED CREATIVE SPACEMAKING
Drawing influence from the historic Moorhead power plant and the Red River, this project aims to join the past with the present and future and to provide a space for the community to gather and celebrate its legacy. The design includes a rolling series of berms, a collection of beautiful benches, various gardens, a water feature, a warming house, and an earthen amphitheater. A key element of this design is the perennial garden featuring plants and stories collected from the people of Moorhead. The Heritage Garden and Amphitheater is a collaborative project between artists Rob Fisher, Kevin Johnson, and Su Legatt, The Plains Art Museum, Moorhead Public Service, the City of Moorhead. It is funded by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, ArtPlace, Bush Foundation, and the Lake Region Arts Council.
