Artists on Main Street
In 2019, the City of Cook was one of four Minnesota cities selected to be an Artists on Main Street community. Artists on Main Street is a program by Rethos in partnership with Springboard for the Arts and support from the Bush Foundation.
The pandemic delayed the program for one year and now artists are ready to show their projects on River Street.
Eleven project proposals were evaluated and approved by representatives from the City of Cook, Cook Public Library and Northwoods Friends of the Arts. Eligible artists had to live within 30 miles of the City and attend an online artist workshop. The workshop outlined the City’s vision for River Street and allowed artists to meet and talk about possible projects.
