The Crossing Arts Alliance mission is to promote and enhance arts opportunities in the Central Lakes Area through facilities, partnering, and programming.

This activity is funded, in part, by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund; and grants from Sertoma Winter Wonderland, Brainerd Service League, Mid Minnesota Federal Credit Union, and the Anderson Family Legacy Fund.

This event made possible by a grant from the Five Wings Arts Coucil.
