Reach for the Arts Annual Fund 2021

Your generosity will help make 2021 as significant and meaningful as ever!

Our Reach for the Arts annual fund campaign is an opportunity to highlight the many amazing things our Lanesboro Arts members help make happen over the year. Your support has continued to make wonderful programs and events happen here at Lanesboro Arts — yet there’s no denying that this year looks different than most. While we find strength in the creativity and community connection happening on a daily basis, we are also all grappling with a global pandemic and ongoing racist systemic oppression. The global, national, and local landscapes have changed drastically, and Lanesboro Arts has worked tirelessly to adapt along with them. We’re deeply grateful for your support that allows us to continue to do so.

Looking forward to 2021 is an exercise in determined hope. With the new year, we will continue adapting to and growing alongside the necessary changes we want to see in our communities.

Your support will help:

  • Support new and continued public art projects, including the installation of the Theatre District Mural.
  • Youth arts education programming that inspires and enriches young people to create!
  • Create brand new performances in Gateway Park, in response to community interest in this natural amphitheater space.
  • Launch a new outdoor, socially distant Rhythms on the Root summer music concert series!
  • Safely plan a new locally-based, socially distant artist residency program.
  • Support Lanesboro’s comprehensive plan process, continuing the connection between community and arts-based problem solving.

We believe in the transformative power of creativity in our daily lives. We believe in the collective impact of art and artists in processing our world. We believe that our community is strongest when we rise together to grow into new challenges and opportunities. We hope you’ll join us in upholding these beliefs through our mission of activating the people and places of Lanesboro by supporting us today.

Our goal is to raise $15,000 by December 31st.

We’re relying on people like you to help us reach our goal and provide these experiences for our region. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to support Lanesboro Arts’ vital community programming today!
