Thinking of taking a cruise this autumn? You might want to check Minnesota’s intra-state cruise, the Studio Cruise of Bemidji and environs.
The Bemidji – First City of Arts Studio Cruise is “a self-guided tour of the studios of artists working within a 40 mile radius of Bemidji.” For three days, October 21-23, 2016, the free and open Cruise guides art lovers to a host of land-locked ports of call, the creative workspaces of participating artists who live in or around beautiful Bemidji.
Promotional materials from Cruise planners boast that Bemidji has more visual, performance and literary artists “than one can imagine!” With just a bit of local pride Cruise promotional materials describe the magnetic attraction of Bemidji. “Whether it’s the pristine natural surroundings, the relaxed pace or the educational atmosphere, many artists create their life’s work, quietly tucked away in their individual studios.”
Studio cruisers are invited to take a self-guided tour of some of the area’s best-known artists and artisans in their studios where visitors will find demos and show sale specials.
