Art Leap, an "open studio event" featuring artists and guest artists, will offer 30 sites and feature nearly 100 artists at studios and other locations in Hubbard, Becker and Wadena counties September 23 and 24. Sites will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Hop from studio to studio, learn process, appreciate skill and support the artists. Let fall's natural beauty inspire you as it does the artists as you pass lakes and travel country roads.
See what's new at studios and sites you've visited in the past and find new places that will be part of this year's event. Heartland Arts sponsors Art Leap with funding provided, in part, by Itasca-Mantrap's Operation Round Up, Park Rapids Downtown Business Association and West Acres Cares. This activity is also funded 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.
