The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council (NWMAC) welcomes you to visit the We Are Water Art Exhibit, now on display in Kiehle Auditorium at the University of Minnesota Crookston.
Artworks were created by area residents during workshops that were held throughout the region this fall. Participants were encouraged to create using the theme “We Are Water” as inspiration. In a similar spirit to our Equality and Respect for All workshops, participants were provided a 12×12 canvas, supplies and instruction to create a piece of art around this theme. Water can be a source of recreation; it keeps us alive; it is used for daily life. Participants were encouraged to bring snippets or photographs or anything else they might want to use as material, medium, or inspiration. The workshops and exhibit are part of a larger We Are Water MN project that spans the state of Minnesota.
To view the We Are Water Art Exhibit, please visit UMC any weekday.
On Friday, January 25 an artist’s reception was held to view the canvases and other works in the statewide We Are Water MN project. Ten years of Clean Water, Land and Legacy funding (Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008) was also celebrated with special guest speakers.
