Artists on Main Street explores how the arts help address the challenges affecting Main Street communities today. The pilot year’s success in Faribault, Mankato, and Winona has resulted in continued investment in the program by the Bush Foundation to include eleven communities over a three-year period. Four communities were selected to join the program in 2019: Northfield, Olivia, Wabasha, and Willmar.
Artists on Main Street is a program by Rethos in partnership with Springboard for the Arts, with support from the Bush Foundation.
