In partnership with the City of Winona Parks and Recreation Department during winter & spring 2023, The Joy Labs partnered with 13 community groups and 250+ community members to create mindful art that will be featured in area parks. Community partners included the Advocacy Center of Winona, East End Rec, Engage Winona Lived Experience Leaders, Home & Community Options, Our Voices, Project FINE, Winona Catholic Workers, Winona County History Center, Winona County Treatment Court, Winona Friendship Center, Winona Housing & Redevelopment Authority, Winona Outdoor Collaborative, and the Winona Public Library.
The You Are Here/Be Here Now art will offer an invitation to pause and take a mindful moment. Join us for an art reception July 12, 4-6pm at the Winona Public Library to see all of the original artwork which will be up throughout the month of July! See The Joy Labs’ events page for more info about this and other upcoming events.
This activity is 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.
