Promoting fine arts in East Grand Forks MN

About the East Grand Forks Arts & Crafts Council

The East Grand Forks Arts and Crafts Council is a non profit organization whose purpose is to promote the fine arts and fine arts education in East Grand Forks Minnesota.  Each year for the past 43 years, the council has organized and run a craft fair as our main fundraiser.  The craft fair is one way in which we support local artist and folk art in our area.  We also sponsor art exhibits at our local library and bring in artist  to teach or demonstrate their craft to our school children.  We donate supplies to our school's art and music programs.  The council sponsors scholarships to art and music camps as well as college scholarships to students majoring in the fine arts or fine arts education.  To date the Council has donated a total of $475,842.85 to promote the fine arts and fine arts education in our city.
