Join us and enjoy all that art has to offer at Minnesota Marine Art Museum’s monthly program – 2nd Saturday! This month’s theme is ‘Community.’ November’s event offers $1 admission for all, free guided tours, art-making activities, live music in the galleries, everyone’s favorite search-and-find game Bingo Overboard!, and many ways to explore ‘community’ with a day full of fun activities for all ages. For more information and for a detailed schedule of events, please visit mmam.org/SecondSaturdays.

Second Saturdays is an arts access program with the goal of reducing intimidation and increasing comfortable access to fine arts for everyone. MMAM developed Second Saturdays to change, expand and enrich the way we connect with our community in Winona, Minnesota. MMAM is also pleased to offer free rides to and from the museum with the Winona Transit Service Dial-a-Ride. Please call 507-454-6666 to schedule your ride.

Second Saturdays are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. This highly competitive arts access grant encourages arts organizations across the state to invest in programming that creates long-term engagement between arts organizations and their communities. Second Saturdays is also made possible by our generous sponsor WNB Financial, media sponsor The Water Main, Minnesota Public Radio, Bingo Overboard! sponsor Doug Troke, Farmers Insurance, and music sponsor Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Winona.

Founded in 2006, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization with the mission to engage visitors in meaningful visual arts experiences through education and exhibitions that explore the ongoing and historic human relationship with water.

Minnesota Marine Art Museum is a member of the River Arts Alliance. To learn more about the benefits of membership, please visit: riverartsalliance.org/JOIN.
