The Enriching Arts Program brings original art by regional artists into senior living facilities. The exhibitions are presented in the most public spaces of these campuses and change every three months to create new experiences for residents, visitors and staff to enjoy and appreciate together.
Discover where community, art, and the great outdoors come together. The Bench Project consists of eight benches in eight communities created by local artists and youth in partnership with the St. Croix Valley Foundation. Each bench is a unique work of art that is a beautiful, functional and visible reminder of our creative spirit. So take a seat on a masterpiece, and enjoy the view.
Each September, the Phipps Center joins the Hudson Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau in presenting Spirit of the St. Croix Art Festival in Lakefront Park. The event features food, live music, and an art fair with more than 80 juried artists displaying their wares.
What We Need is Here (WWNH) is an ongoing series of annual seminars for artists. Established in 2008, the purpose of these monthly gatherings is to explore the role of art and sustainability to create thriving communities in the St. Croix River Valley. The name was taken from the last line in the poem “The Wild Geese” by environmental activist Wendell Berry.
