MacRostie Art Center

We check in with Katie Marshall from the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids every First Friday.  She was in the studio this morning telling Heidi and John and our listeners about all the great stuff happening in Grand Rapids this weekend.  In addition to the usual First Friday events, Winter Glow Festival kicks off today at 4pm in downtown Grand Rapids complete with Mr. and Mrs. Claus!

The Ely Folk School builds community  by providing learning experiences that celebrate the wilderness, heritage, art, history, culture and craft of the people of northern Minnesota.  We check in with Molly Olson from the Ely Folk School on the first Friday of each month and she tips us off on the upcoming events. 

Bemidji, MN was just named Minnesota Monthly's Best MN Town.  One of the many elements of Bemidji that make it unique is its passion for the arts.  The Bemidji Sculpture Walk, a thriving theater and music scene, the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra, the First Friday Arts Walk, and the yearly Art in the Park are just a sampling of wealth of riches in the arts that set Bemidji apart from other comparable towns.

   This past Friday was the First Friday of the month.  Around here that means we take the time to check in with people around the listening area to find out about the First Friday arts events as well as the exhibits that will be on display for the month and the unique art experiences available in the coming month.

For ten years now, artists in the Bemidji area have invited the public into their homes and studio spaces to share their processes and craft during the annual First City Studio Cruise.  The event kicks off this Friday and runs thru Sunday.  Maps for the the self guided tour are available at the Bemidji Visitors Center by Paul and Babe,  the Watermark Art Center, Gallery North, many of hotels around town and at the KBXE studio at 305 America Ave in downtown Bemidji.
