Continuing Our Legacy
The Red Wing Arts Association is the oldest arts organization in Red Wing, beginning in 1952 as an interactive arts educational program. Our support of the arts incorporates all forms of fine, applied, and performing arts at every level within our community. It is our belief that a personal engagement in the creative process, the active exchange of ideas, and a commitment to the diversity of the arts are mainstays of our culture. An appreciation of artistic expression helps us to remember our past, energizes our present, and develops a strong faith in our future.
We understand that each citizen, in his or her own way, should take an active role in the community to help strengthen it. Supporting the understanding and appreciation of the arts helps assure a stronger, more compatible community for all.
