The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council is hosting We Are Water workshops, led by area artist Trey Everett.
Please RSVP today for a We Are Water workshop held in a variety of locations throughout our region. In a similar spirit to our Equality and Respect for All workshops, participants will be 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 are encouraged to bring snippets or photographs or anything else they might want to use as material, medium, or inspiration. Completed artwork will be put on display in the NWMAC Gallery in November and will also be included in a catalogue of the exhibit.
This is a fun interactive activity for a group of people who gather monthly for a meeting. Does your group or club have an October meeting that you would like to combine with an outing to explore the topic of We Are Water on canvas? You must RSVP so we have enough art supplies and canvas.
44 canvas pieces will be exhibited at our gallery in November and December and will move to the University of Minnesota Crookston in mid-January. There will be a reception on Friday, January 25 at UMC. There will be a catalog related to pieces in the show.
What is the We Are Water MN traveling exhibit?
West Polk County Soil and Water District in Crookston was selected to host the impressive We Are Water MN traveling exhibit from January 20 to March 4, 2019. Other sites include St Paul, Bemidji, Duluth, Austin, Northfield, Grand Rapids and Onamia. The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council is working in collaboration with leaders in Crookston to compliment this family friendly, interactive Humanities Commission exhibit with our own local art creations. Art creation workshops are offered in October and November 2018 that will bring together citizens, in our seven county region, creating a canvas that depicts what they think of when they hear We Are Water.
We Are Water MN explores the connections between the humanities and water through an exhibit, public events and educator resources. Visitors reflect on local stories and the meaning and experiences of water in Minnesota with space to add their own stories. By creating relationships around water, we are creating networks that can promote positive social norms, and share a vision for and participate in water stewardship. The website on We Are Water MN shares stories from people in Minnesota relating to this theme. To read these stories visit https://mnhum.org/we-are-

An Enemy of the People

Downtown Gazebo Park and Hallock City Hall
Known for turning classic plays into unique and entertaining theater experiences, Sod House Theater will bring a blue grass infused adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s, An Enemy of the People, to nine Minnesota communities this summer.
The classic play examines how a community responds when a local doctor threatens to expose that the water it relies upon for tourism is being poisoned. It questions how far a community will go protect their town’s secret in order to avoid financial ruin. Join us for summer fun and action packed live theater!
The play will be performed at site specific locations throughout the city and feature interactive activities including a live vote during the show.
You don’t want to miss this fun event!
An Enemy of the People features Joy Dolo, Darcey Engen, Ashley Hanson, Alex Hathaway, Brian Laidlaw, Del Logeais, Luverne Seifert, JoNathan Thomas and Suzanne Warmanen and actors/musicians from the Hallock area.
