The Park Rapids Arts and Culture Advisory Commission welcomes ideas about how the arts can help create a more vital and prosperous community.

A community meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18 at the Park Rapids City Council Chambers. Use the entrance from 2nd Street West.

The advisory commission will use your ideas and input to update goals in the city Arts and Culture Plan approved in June 2017.

Some goals in the original plan have been met, including the Red Bridge Park Sculpture Trail. With the Armory Square project becoming a reality and the Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council as a partner, the commission will assess its role as project leader, partner or supporter in future projects.

If you are unable to attend Dec. 18, you are invited to participate in an Arts Council survey available online at Results from this survey also will be shared with the Advisory Commission.
