Sculpture entry deadline extended

The City of Park Rapids and Park Rapids Arts and Culture Commission are accepting entries for a Sculpture Trail in Red Bridge Park.

The deadline has been extended to the end of the business day Monday, May 7.

Thousands of park and trail users visit Red Bridge Park every year to use a paved, pedestrian-friendly trail. The park is the trailhead for the Heartland State Trail, which is used year round for walking, running, biking, rollerblading, snowmobiling and other recreational activities. Red Bridge Park is located near downtown Park Rapids and visitors can access the park from Fish Hook River and nearby Heartland Park.

Entries of completed works are invited and must be submitted, along with a $25 entry fee by the new deadline. Artists will be notified of selection committee results on May 18 and will have until June 8 to install their works. Each artist whose work is selected will receive a $500 honorarium.
