We Are Water MN, a traveling statewide project, was brought to the northwest region of Minnesota through a grant by the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council (NWMAC) and the West Polk County Soil and Water District in Crookston, in partnership with the Minnesota Humanities Center and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council worked in collaboration with leaders in Crookston to complement the We Are Water MN exhibit with their own local art creations. Crookston visual artist Trey Everett held several workshops with residents in communities around the area to reflect on the meaning and inspiration of water. Participants were provided 12” X 12” canvases, supplies, and guidance to create art pieces around this theme. A total of 78 canvas pieces were created and exhibited at the NWMAC Gallery. The We Are Water MN traveling exhibit continues to tour throughout the state of Minnesota.
