Congratulations on receiving funding from the Cultural STAR Program! Whether your project involves an art performance or capital improvements for our cultural organization, or anything in between, you are helping Saint Paul remain the most livable city in America. 

Crediting Cultural STAR

After receiving funds from this program, you are asked to credit Cultural STAR in a way that makes sense for your project:


There are two types of STAR logos that can be used when crediting Cultural STAR funding:

STAR logo color STAR logo black-white
Download a JPEG of the color logo Download a JPEG of the black and white logo

If you would like to also use a City of Saint Paul logo, it is available for download here.

For Capital Improvement Awardees

Capital Improvement awardees are expected to credit Cultural STAR with a physical sign. The sign specs are flexible based on the scale of the project and the discretion of the organization. 

The Department of Planning and Economic Development has created a fillable .pdf that can be used as a template when creating your sign. This file can then be sent to a printing company and be posted near the site of the project.
