Tea Conversations with artist Anna Metcalfe
Artist Anna Metcalfe, whose exhibition Upstream is on display now, will host two tea conversations using her handmade tea set while sharing stories of the Mississippi River. This opportunity is free, and participants who reserve their seat will be able to take home their own tea cup featuring stories of the River. Call the Museum at 507-474-6626 to register for the 10:30AM or 1:00PM tea conversation
Slow Art Challenge asks visitors to choose from 10 artworks, and take 3-5 minutes to look at that piece closely and then reflect on it.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
