  Park Rapids, MN celebrates Art Leap! this weekend.   It's a unique opportunity to see artists in their studios creating their work.   LuAnn Hurd-Loff told  us all about the 2 day, self-guided tour on today's morning show.  Pick up a map to the various studios at the Park Rapids Chamber Visitor Center, the Park Rapids Library, the Community Education building or any of the several motels in downtown Park Rapids.

We spoke with Lisa Jordan from the Crossing Arts Alliance in Brainerd.  She told us all about the Alliance's upcoming move,  the wearable art style show that will celebrate their new space and lots of exciting things happening in downtown Brainerd.   

Lori Forshay-Donnay of the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji stopped by the KBXE studio to discuss the community's 50th Art in Park.   Vendors include jewelers, guitar makers, canoe builders, pottery, photography, shadow-boxes and whole lot more.  The Bemidji Art in Park is going on this weekend, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 10-4 at Library Park in Bemidji.
