On August 25 and 26th, Northern Lights.mn will be in Jamestown, North Dakota to celebrate the opening of Jamestown Art Center’s new Arts Park, a creative downtown development project that has turned an empty lot into an arts-focused park for the community. We’ve been working with JAC for three years to consult on the commission of permanent elements for the park and to help program its celebratory opening.
A flurry of activities are planned for the 2 day event, including live music, art-making, a pep band, and a living sculpture competition. We are presenting four projects by Minnesota artists that you may have seen at previous Northern Lights events:
Dumpling House by Molly Balcom Raleigh and Emily Stover
Traffic Jam Scene by Preston Drum
Behind the Seams by Rachel Breen and Nickey Robare
Under Ice by Michael Murnane
Jamestown, ND is only 327 miles away from the Twin Cities. Set your GPS and meet us there!
