Lanesboro, Minnesota: Lanesboro Arts Center has been awarded a grant of $100,000 from the McKnight Foundation to provide capital support for the development of the Lanesboro Arts Campus, which includes the Lanesboro Arts Center gallery building, the St. Mane Theatre, art in public spaces, and community collaborations. “This is very exciting news and an incredible endorsement for our vision from the McKnight Foundation.
