ABOUT THE ARTWORK: The city of St. Paul and Mayor Melvin Carter partnered with Springboard for the Arts to commission this piece which celebrates the work of the city’s People’s Prosperity Pilot, a guaranteed income pilot program launched last year. Dr. Nicole Milligan and the Milligan Studio created the featured sculpture ‘Altitude,’ a joyous celebration crafted with glass, metal, and sound. It was inspired by the dreams of children and a tight-rope walker’s parasol. ‘Altitude’ will be hung from the second-floor window of YWCA St. Paul for the community to enjoy.
