As a donor and long-time volunteer, I have found the Carnegie Art Center a wonderful, visual arts resource for exhibiting, taking classes, and finding arts resources. The Carnegie is in one of the most beautiful, historic landmarks in southcentral MN and is the largest visual arts gallery in the area. Each month, two new exhibits of new and emerging visual artists are presented. The large, annual regional art exhibit done in cooperation with the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council is in May/June each year. The juried exhibit is open to everyone who wants to submit art to be considered for the show. Usually there are almost 100 pieces of original art work presented in this exhibit alone!
The Carnegie Art Center has three, large galleries in a beautiful, historic building. Exhibits change monthly. The quality and professionalism of the exhibit presentation is fantastic and a great service to beginning and professional visual artists!
The Carnegie now has a Facebook page that is always up to date (Carnegie Art Center Mankato) and a new webpage in progress: "thecarnegiemankato.com"
