The success of mnartists.org is rooted in the strength of its community of artists, both on and offline. For the last several years we have invited mnartists.org members to assist in staffing our booth at the Minnesota State Fair. Through this opportunity hundreds of mnartists.org members volunteered their time and talents, while promoting mnaritsts.org to the thousands of State Fair visitors annually. We are grateful for every volunteer who has supported us in the past and thank you for service to the local art community.
While the State Fair has been a popular and incredibly successful opportunity we felt it was time to change. We wanted to create a new and exciting event for our members to participate. After careful consideration mnartists.org is taking a break from the Minnesota State Fair to focus on the first mnartist.org Field Day- a FREE day-long cross disciplinary event throughout the Walker Art Center campus on August 27th, 2009. mnartists.org Field Day will include literature readings, music, games, organization booths and opportunities for volunteers to promote mnartists.org and their own creative practices. We again invite you to consider volunteering your time and talents to assist us with this event.
We look forward to your help in making the first mnartists.org Field Day an enormous success.
Scott Stulen, Project Director, mnartists.org
