Art Leap 2019
Art Leap, an “open studio event” featuring artists and guest artists, will offer 20 sites and feature more than 65 artists and musicians at studios and other locations in Hubbard, Becker and Wadena counties. The event will be held Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 28 and 29. Studios will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. It’s a great time to purchase original art for your home, office or as gifts and meet the artist who created it. As you drive from studio to studio you can expect to see fall colors at their peak. At some studios and other sites, visitors will find artists doing demonstrations, hear live music and enjoy treats. A brochure with a map also provides descriptions of the art and artists who created the works as well as scheduled music performance times and locations. Brochures will be available in mid-August at the Park Rapids Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center, Park Rapids Area Library and other locations and at www.prlaac.org. Heartland Arts (formerly Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council) sponsors Art Leap with funding provided, 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 Nov. 4, 2008.
