Moorhead Public Service unveils unique, community-driven

artwork design on its Woodlawn Water Tower


On Wednesday, August 1, 2018, at approximately 11:00 am, Moorhead Public Service will have an “unveiling of the artwork” ceremony to display the recently-completed artwork on its Woodlawn Water Tower. The unveiling will consist of lowering the curtain containment system around the entirety of the Woodlawn Water Tower to reveal a unique, community-driven wrap-around artwork design that will be seen in its entirety for the first time.

Local artist Suzanne Legatt organized a public input process whereby Moorhead Public Service staff and City of Moorhead staff worked collaboratively to gather community input for the design. After community input was received, local artists Stephen Dorsey and Jack Lunde created the design. The design features several historical landmarks surrounding the Woodlawn Park area, and several natural and recreational elements of the neighborhood.


Rehabilitation of the Woodlawn Water Tower began on June 4, 2018, and is expected to be completed in August 2018. The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the existing coatings (which were over 20 years old) and to conduct several structural improvements to the water tower.
