Posted in Lanesboro Features

LANESBORO, MN. – Back by popular demand, the “Surprise Sculpture” program of Lanesboro Arts will offer an opportunity for kids and adults to participate in weekly collaborative arts creation. “Surprise Sculpture” will be held weekly on Tuesdays from 12-2 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre, from June 9 – July 14, 2015. The program is free and no registration is necessary; people can drop in and attend one or more sessions whenever their schedule permits. Bring a sack lunch! Each class will begin with brainstorming and a description of the steps needed to complete the project, during which time students can eat together (lemonade provided). Each week, with the guidance of Lanesboro Arts staff and volunteers, students will work together to create different large sculpture projects using recycled and upcycled materials. At the end of each session, students will help to place the sculptures at various locations in Lanesboro, left there to “surprise’ public audiences.

“Surprise Sculpture” is a program of Lanesboro Arts. This program is supported by the Arlin Falck Foundation. Lanesboro Arts’ mission is to serve as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. The St. Mane Theatre is located at 206 Parkway Ave N in Lanesboro, Minn. For more information about ‘Surprise Sculpture’, contact Sara or Kara at /9507) 467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org / www.lanesboroarts.org.
