Duluth Art Institute


Master grant writing and the art of getting residencies with a little help from the Duluth Art Institute and artist Nik Nerburn Wednesday evening ...

Arrowhead Regional Arts Council

The Arrowhead Regional Arts Council celebrated a Northland artist and an art advocate this past weekend at the 21st Annual Arrowhead Arts Awards. Glass artist Mike Tonder and MacRostie Art Center Executive Director Katie Marshall were honored.

The Minnesota State Arts Board is an important resource for artists but also for educators, festival organizers and more.  Applying for an arts grant can support tradiational arts, community education opportunities and even putting on a community, music or arts festival.  We share our conversation with Executive Director, Sue Gens.

Approaching deadlines include the 2020 Artist Initiative Grant for Literary Arts and Performing Arts: Friday, April 26, 2019 and for Visual Arts: Friday, June 28, 2019

Getting two to three times more grant applications than you can fund makes for tough decisions.

But Erik Torch of the Northland Foundation says not only are they impressed by the good work being done in the seven northeastern Minnesota counties they serve,  they're privileged to take part in making a difference.
