On July 16, the opening day of the 40th Annual Downtown Fargo Street Fair, Plains Art Museum is hosting a full day of fun and shopping at the Museum with our Summer Ceramics Sale! We’re only two blocks off Broadway on First Avenue, so beat the heat and stop in for a fantastic art fair experience at the Plains!

  • Unique ceramic works by multiple professional and emerging area artists, including studio members and instructors of the Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity.
  • Plus offerings by artists who work in other media, from painting to printmaking and more!
  • Kids! From 1 to 5 p.m., join in the Pollinator Party and meet Buzz  Lab 2.0 interns, take tours, and create a work of art inspired by our Pollinator Garden.
  • Pie Project Fargo will provide free pie and beverages!

Pollinator Party

July 16, 2015
1:00 pmto5:00 pm

Join us to celebrate the Pollinator Garden in the new Pollinator Plaza outside the Center for Creativity on Thursday, July 16 from 1 – 5 p.m. Stop by on your way to or from the Downtown Fargo Street Fair for art-making fun, meet the Buzz Lab kids, take tours of the garden, and other fun activities. We are also planning a major ceramics sale!

Pie Project Fargo
The Pollinator Party includes a social engagement project by the art duo “Low Tech/High Joy,” who use their homemade pies as a centerpiece for conviviality and conversation. Marlaine Cox and Karen Kasel from the Twin Cities were charmed by the pie culture of Fargo-Moorhead and proposed linking pies to the Museum’s Fargo Street Fair events and the Pollinator Garden (fruit for pies need pollinators!). Stop in to see their “pie diorama” in the Steven Berrell Memorial Commons at the Center for Creativity, and (while supplies last) have a free slice of pie and cup of coffee and get to know others who stop in for this afternoon of hospitality and fun.
