Please join us as we celebrate Sarah Johnson, Creative Laureate, as she wraps up her three- year term. Sarah is the first ever Creative Laureate for the City of Winona and you can see the fruits of her labor in collaboration with the community throughout Winona. Winona is more colorful thanks to Sarah!

A short program will begin at 2:30 pm with Sarah giving an overview of her activities and accomplishments during her tenure as Creative Laureate.

And, as always Sarah will provide a community art activity.

Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.
