*SMAC Art Gallery
May 10th through June 29th: Gregory Harp photography series, Sacred Places: Churches in Kandiyohi County. This exhibit is a result of a SMAC Art Project grant in which Kandiyohi Historical Society (KCUS) worked with artist Gregory Harp, of New London, to photograph 24 Kandiyohi County Churches. The photographs were printed and mounted by West Central Printing of Willmar and in May of 2016 the KCHS hosted an exhibit and artist reception for the project, in the hopes that this exhibit may now travel and educate the public on what Kandiyohi county has to offer!
