2021 Highlights

ArtsLink's 2021 activities were robust and looking back, we see how much we accomplished with the support of generous arts advocates like YOU. Check out some of this year's highlights, and consider a tax-deductible donation to help us continue our work of advancing a culture of creativity in our community in 2022 and beyond.

Hosted 2nd Sundays @ The Painted Forest in July, a lively public event in Valton featuring food, live music, art & science activities and tours of Ernest Hupeden’s The Painted Forest

Sponsored Spring & Fall Public Art Exhibits for Reedsburg Area High School students

Installed FLUVIAL North, a large-scale temporary artwork in Harvest Park consisting of 11 place- themed cyanotype banners

Sponsored a commission by local Ho Chunk artist Chris Sweet in honor of Indigenous Peoples Day and in support of the Baraboo Indigenous Students United group

Featured artist, author, restaurateur, and Reedsburg native Brian Bartels for a Bloody Mary Brunch in downtown Reedsburg

Gathered regional artists and arts movers & shakers at a Creative Community Social designed to strengthen networks between arts and culture workers

With Wormfarm Institute, commissioned local artists to create large-scale temporary public art at Reedsburg’s Disc Golf Course as part of the DISCover Art Golf project

Helped an emerging maker produce her first public exhibit as part of the Hill & Valley Exploration Tour

Completed critical upgrades to Ruminant’s stained-glass panels in Harvest Park

Plenty of work happened behind the scenes, too. We continued researching the development of an Arts Endowment that would support our activities for many years to come.  And, because we believe that creativity thrives in an inclusive, supportive and diverse culture, we spent six months developing an Anti-Racism statement and refining the values we intend to live by. Finally, we helped local artists and makers, both new and established, move their work forward by linking them with resources and marketing their events.

Your financial support ensures creative community-building activities continue in and around Reedsburg year-round. Please consider making a donation today.

Thank you for your support.
