BEMIDJI AREA COMMUNITY MURAL SESSIONS ON ENVIRONMENT AND CULTURE

Bemidji, MN - The public is invited to participate in the creation of a community mural focusing on environment and culture in the northwest Minnesota region.

Red Lake Anishinaabe artist, Wesley May will lead a series of hands-on sessions to discover vision and experiences of the natural world to express both diversity and commonalities through art. Together, participants envision, design, and paint a mural to reflect our unique region, cultures and population. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend, regardless of painting experience or artistic ability. It is our hope that this painting will reflect the beauty and diversity of not only our unique region, but of our unique and diverse community.

Join us at the Railriver Folk School, 303 Railroad Street, in Bemidji, for these free workshops. Session 1 begins Thursday, November 14th from 6-7:30 pm, with 4 sessions to follow: Saturday, November 16th from 10am to 1:30pm, and from 6-7:30 pm- Thursday, November 28, Thursday December 5th, and Thursday, December 12th.

For more information contact Wesley May at wesley@wesleymayarts.com or Simone Senogles at 218-751-4967 or simone@ienearth.org

This activity is funded in whole or in part by a Region 2 Arts Council Grant through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature, and the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund passed by Minnesota Voters on November 4, 2008.
