“Threshold” sculpture virtual dedication

Tue, 09/22/2020 - 9:49am

As we announced earlier this summer, the NDDC was awarded a grant through the Southeastern MN Arts Council (SEMAC) to purchase and install a sculpture at the west entrance to the Riverwalk, in collaboration with the City of Northfield’s Arts and Culture Commission.  We had planned an in-person dedication ceremony, but decided to shift gears due to Covid concerns.  Instead, with the help of Northfield Public Broadcasting, we produced a short video to commemorate this spectacular piece of art and the people involved in making it happen.  It turned out great, and we hope you enjoy watching!

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
