The 2018 Arts Expo
Thank you for attending and for the many representatives of all the arts organizations that spent their day with us
Arts Expo. The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council hosted an Arts Expo on Saturday, April 28 at the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Thief River Falls. The event included presentations from representatives from a variety of arts organizations. These representatives staffed tables to meet with attendees, answer questions and provide information about their organizations and services. The NW Art Exhibit was open during the Expo.
Before the Expo opened, Craig Dunn of VSA Minnesota gave a presentation for artists with disabilities, arts leaders, or other organizations trying to provide access to people with disabilities. He was also available during the Expo to answer any questions. Vsamn.org
