Event Details

The Healthy Earth Seasonal Panels project engaged four Southwest Minnesota artists to paint panels depicting the four seasons we experience in Minnesota: winter, spring, summer, and fall. The purpose of this project is to utilize the power of art and local artists to support the engagement and connection to our natural world as part of the Healthy Earth, Healthy Kids event taking place in Willmar on April 27, 2024. This project serves as both a celebration of the Earth and a call to take care of our environment. The final product of this project will be four painted 3’x7’ panels that depict each of the four seasons of the year, specifically as experienced by various cultures in our community. These panels will be on display during the Healthy Earth, Healthy Kids event as well as turned into posters that will engage Kandiyohi County third grade elementary students through a coloring contest. During the event, there will also be a coloring booth for attendees to participate in. After the first annual Healthy Earth, Healthy Kids event, these panels will be available for other groups to display at community functions and events for years to come, as well as a signature feature at future Eco Fairs.

“This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.”

Event: “Healthy Earth, Healthy Kids,” Saturday, April 27, 2024, 10am-2pm, Willmar Civic Center, 2707 Arena Dr, Willmar, MN 56201. This public event is a partnership between the League of Women Voters and the Kandiyohi County Area YMCA, along with many other area partners. There are three main goal areas of this event: education, connection/resources, and engagement/action.
