Bemidji, MN was just named Minnesota Monthly's Best MN Town.  One of the many elements of Bemidji that make it unique is its passion for the arts.  The Bemidji Sculpture Walk, a thriving theater and music scene, the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra, the First Friday Arts Walk, and the yearly Art in the Park are just a sampling of wealth of riches in the arts that set Bemidji apart from other comparable towns.  

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.
