In Our Gallery

The Willmar Education and Arts Center
611 Fifth St SW, Willmar, MN

The Willmar Education and Arts Center, located in what was once the Willmar Senior High School, is a facility for both community arts events and the Willmar Public Schools district office. The building houses an art exhibition gallery and a 750-seat performance auditorium. Over the past 25 years continual efforts have been made to improve the facility for arts related purposes. A rehearsal hall, green room, and a performance shell for the stage with a state of the art sound system make it a welcoming venue for performances. The gallery space, located in the lobby area, is used for showcasing works by students of the Willmar Public Schools from February through May and exhibitions arranged by the Willmar Area Arts Council June through January.

NOW ON EXHIBIT

The Willmar Public Schools art departments are currently providing exhibits in the gallery.  We will be back with rotating exhibits in June.  In the meantime, both Mary LaPatka’s exhibit titled “The Beauty and Science of Botanical Art,” and John Kellen’s exhibit, “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words” are still available here.
