GRA goes Green 2017.jpg

We reached our goal of engaging 1,000 students!



The 2017 exhibition is titled "Sea of Change" focused on reducing pollution in the water, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and small ways to keep the environment clean.

This project gave students the opportunity to create an art piece at home or in school that became part of the community wide installation which was on display in the Great River Arts Main Gallery during the month of April.

Our goal was to engage 1,000 students & community members and which we were able to not only reach, but exceed! The installation had 1,122 10" x 10" tiles installed on the walls in addition to several recycled bouquets, fish and butterflies designed by seniors at St. Otto's. This project would not have been possible without grant support from the Five Wings Arts Council. 

Take a look at the exhibit through the eyes of Great River Television Station Manager Mark Slupe. Enjoy! 

Planning is already underway for GRA goes GREEN! 2018 which will take place in April 2018. If you would like to get involved or would like more information please contact We are looking forward to expanding the exhibition for 2018 and are excited about the possibilities!
