North Carolina-based artist Kurt Perschke’s acclaimed work, the RedBall Project, is a 15 foot sculptural installation traveling around the world, adopting cities as its canvas. Through a simple act of imagination, Perschke squeezes and places the RedBall in imaginative locations to draw attention to our built environment and history, and disrupt our daily routines. It has been to dozens of major cities around the world, and now it is coming to Fargo-Moorhead!
See the RedBall Project October 4-10th at these locations (11 am-6 pm daily):
The RedBall Project is brought to Fargo and Moorhead thanks to support from the Fargo Arts & Culture Commission, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Plains Art Museum, Fargo Park District, Insight to Action/Carol Schlossman Consulting, Fargo-Moorhead Convention & Visitors Bureau, and other supportive partners.
