Exhibit Reception | Marian Anderson: Her Artistic Process

Join us for a reception to celebrate the opening of our newest exhibit, Marian Anderson: Her Artistic Process, and Marian Anderson Day.
Inspiration has always been at the heart of Marian Anderson’s work. Growing up in the woods and marshes of Nicollet County set in place a lifelong love of nature, and it was the natural world that fueled her creativity in adulthood. A self-taught and self-published artist with no formal training, Marian’s legacy continues to live on in her art and the inspiration it brings about in fellow artistic souls.
Marian Anderson: Her Artistic Process recognizes the nationally acclaimed artist and displays her unfinished works alongside completed pieces. We hope you come away from this exhibit with a motivation to pursue your own unique artistic talents.
