This event is free and handicap-accessible.
At the event participants will:
• Join artist Mary Therese to paint a Public Art piece to be installed at Harmony's 3rd Street wall.
• Participants will also plant seeds that will be donated to the Bemidji Community Food Shelf’s Farm Project, and contribute to meet the local food needs of our community.
This is a great family-friendly event that includes music, joyful activities, and meaningful moments together.
About this Event:
This event forms part of a larger project entitled “Gathering Harmonious Energy”, a participatory arts project that weaves the community together through public art and food.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
We also thank Harmony Foods Coop for their financial support to this project!
