About Mankato Piece

The work of Minnesota native artist, Dale Eldred, the Mankato Piece has been on display in the city for 50 years.

Eldred created the sculpture to reflect modern construction and urban renewal that was taking place in the 1960s.

Originally installed on the MSU campus, The Piece was later moved to downtown Mankato in the space currently occupied by the Hilton Garden Inn. In 2009, the piece was moved to Riverfront park where it is now on display.
