The City of Granite Falls and the Department of Public Transformation have launched the Granite Falls City Artist in Residence (CAIR) program – the first of its kind in a town of its size in the country – fostering cultural work that sits at the intersection of civic, social, and place-based practice in a rural setting. They are currently accepting applications from interested local, regional, and national artists to be embedded in the City of Granite Falls (pop. 2,734) for 6-12 months to design and implement arts and cultural strategies to increase civic participation and community engagement in City policy-making, planning and public processes.

The Granite Falls CAIR program is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and the voters of Minnesota through support from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
