The Many Faces of Vasaloppet art project, honoring the many volunteers throughout Vasaloppet’s history, has been awarded its third consecutive grant from the East Central Regional Arts Council.
During the last two years, 181 volunteers have been recognized by having their faces or hands cast in aluminium. Starting in August, phase III will continue with life castings of faces and hands of Vasaloppet volunteers (this includes the many landowners). This time the castings will be limited to 50 participants. Artists for phase III are Keith Raivo, Rod Minnich and Val Raivo.
Vasaloppet volunteers who have yet to participate in the project can email email@example.com for further information and/or to schedule a time to life cast face or hands.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the East Central Regional Arts Council thanks to legislative appropriations from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
