Event Details

Join SMAC, area artists, arts organizations and general art-loving public together for a networking event in Renville County! This will be an awesome opportunity to network with local arts supporters (and maybe even get creative, do a little shopping, learn, and take a selfie)! The SMAC Arty Party will go from 4-6 pm, but the party will be in conjunction with the first kickoff event for this year’s Renville County Farmers & Artisans Market! The market’s event goes from 1-7 pm inside and outside of the Bird Island Cultural Centre at 640 Dogwood Ave in Bird Island (again, SMAC will be available only during 4-6 pm of that time, so plan accordingly!).SMAC’s Renville Board Representative, Kylie Rieke, will be leading an arts activity on the outdoor canvas wall (pictured below) at the Centre. This awesome wall was made as a result of funding form a SMAC Equipment & Facilities Improvement grant. Kylie will lead guests in making colorful butterfly selfie stations on the wall with chalk art!   SMAC staff will also have a booth outside near Kylie’s activity, we will have information about SMAC, free water bottles, and coupons for cake pops from one of the other vendors!! We might even have another arts activity of our own for you to get creative with. Come visit us and find out! Other Highlights: The Renville County Farmers & Artisan Market, hosted by the Cultural Centre & Developing Roots, will have many vendors to shop from, including flowers and plants, arts and crafts, and food vendors. There will even be live music from 4-7 pm! Here’s the list of participating vendors:
