Art Exhibit
A heroic effort
The Dakota County Public Art Citizen Advisory Committee is inviting kids in grades 6–8 who live in Dakota County to create an original work of art that explores the theme “Heroes of Today” and submit it for consideration in a new exhibit.

“Heroes of Today” is the fourth open exhibition of work by local artists sponsored by the public art committee. It will run March–September at the Dakota County Western Service Center, 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley.

Artists must live in Dakota County, and their artwork should be ready for hanging. Entries are limited to one per person. Digital images of submissions may be emailed to or mailed to Jean Erickson at Dakota County Public Services & Revenue Division, 1590 Highway 55, Hastings, MN 55033, by the deadline of Monday, Feb. 3.

For a complete list of criteria for the “Heroes of Today” exhibit or to access a submission form, visit the Public Art Exhibit Web page or call 651-438-4286.
