The Willkommen Committee stopped at the Grand Center for Arts & Culture to welcome the new director. James Lundgren came here from Ohio, but is originally from Minnesota. He has lived in southern Minnesota and worked for non-profits for most of his professional career and is originally from Nicollet. There are artist’s studios available to rent at the Grand. There is also space available for small group meetings. Many of the exhibits at the Grand come from the resident artists. Some artists offer classes in their field as well. There are 10 exhibits planned for 2017. The Grand Center for Arts & Culture is open 10 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, and is located at 210 North Minnesota.
