Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to support and advance the work of artists in our region and build a community that recognizes, appreciates and celebrates the importance of artists and the power of art in our lives. Our vision is that Red Wing Arts is recognized as a major cultural and economic catalyst where our lives, jobs and families are improved through art.

  • Beginning in 1952 as an interactive arts educational program, Red Wing Arts is the oldest arts organization in Red Wing. We are committed to building a community where arts and arts participation are a relevant and vital part of the city of Red Wing.

  • To do this, Red Wing Arts supports the many area artists in the region by providing them with exposure and visibility in our galleries and shop.  It is our belief that a personal engagement in the creative process, the active exchange of ideas, and a commitment to the diversity of the arts are mainstays of our culture. An appreciation of artistic expression helps us to remember our past, energizes our present, and develops a strong faith in our future.
