Ingraham Art Works
Ingraham Art Works designs and builds unique public art and sculpture.
Our public art is creative, durable, functional and contextual (inspired by the place and materials). We take inspiration from the site character, history and culture. We listen to the client and community and utilize a partnership approach that results in community and site driven designs. In it’s studio outside Red Wing, Minnesota, Ingraham Art Works uses stone, metal, wood, concrete and repurposed/recycled materials to create iconic artworks with lasting value. Greg Ingraham is the lead artist. He calls upon his experience as a designer, landscape architect, sculptor and craftsman to create unique art works.
Greg Ingraham is trained as an artist and landscape architect and has over 30 years experience designing and fabricating art. I’ve had a diverse work background in art, design, community planning and construction. I worked as a landscape architect and artist with Hoisington Koegler Group (HKGi), an urban design, landscape architecture and planning firm in Minneapolis. I taught site design and park planning at the University of Minnesota. For the last 30 years I have been involved in all scales of art from jewelry to sculpture to land art.
A common thread throughout my works is translating civic and client input into meaningful, beautiful art that enhances sense of place and enriches people’s lives. Ingraham Art Works was formed to focus on public art and sculpture. My background in landscape architecture and years of work with public and private clients instills a creative and inclusive approach to design while my construction background ensures a durable and low-maintenance installation.
Greg has a degree in Landscape Architecture, a Masters in Business Communications and continues his art education and experimentation at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
