Arts and Cultural Heritage Grant for Individuals
ACHF Arts Access
As a result of creating this mural during the Bemidji First City of Arts Studio Cruise adults and students will gain an understanding of the process of mural painting. As a result of this mural, adults and children will easily be exposed to works of public art on their way to the printers, the grocery or local cafe. The mural will be able to be seen from a car, bus or bicycle. There are no barriers resulting from race, ages or physical disability with the exception of vision. The artist participates in the Bemidji First City of Art Studio Cruise and will keep track of the number of visitors to her studio. It is a little more difficult to assess visitors to the mural once it is in place. A small plaque will be placed below the mural with the artists name, the murals name and an email address to send selfies and photos of visitors. KBXE's staff will keep track of numbers of comments and calls.
The River of Time Studio Cruise entertained over 120 visitors during the October 2016 art event. The mural panels were up and plans were available for viewing. The mural dedication was well attended with over 50 persons coming to celebrate the mural. According to estimates from KBXE about 4 to 5 people come by the radio studio daily to visit the mural. That is approximately 1,565. Many more see it by driving by. It is hoped that, as in past murals, the mural will be visited by school classes.
