Your generous gift to the Make Your Mark! Campaign for Watermark Art Center will create a vibrant place where locals and visitors alike come to be inspired, to engage with culture and community, and to experience art first-hand. The center will be an incubator for the emerging artist and a resource for the growing local artist population, a place to share ideas, learn from each other, and attend visiting artist in-services. An expanded and improved art center will also make Bemidji a more attractive place to live and a tourist draw for those who want to enjoy the north woods and the arts, too. As an economic engine, it will bolster private industry (artist studios and shops), area businesses (increased customer base) and tourism. Thank you!
