Support programming at Twin Rivers

The health of the creative community matters to you. So we invite you to partner with us in the development of meaningful programs that have a broad impact on Greater Mankato. 

Starving Artist at the temple

Starving Artist is Twin Rivers Council for the Arts annual fundraiser featuring an array of local artists performing throughout the night, interacting with guests and showcasing the rich talent of the arts in southern MN. The event also honors this year’s "Emy Award" winner - an outstanding supporter of the arts in Greater Mankato. The funds raised will support the work of Twin Rivers including, public art programming, community development in the area of arts/culture, and professional development training to area artists and arts organizations.

Adopt an Artist

A fun and unique way to support local art is through the Twin Rivers Adopt an Artist Program. Individuals and businesses can “adopt” an artist for $200 to help cover the cost of the monthly exhibition. Your sponsorship provides you the unique cultural experience of hosting friends, colleagues, clients and co-workers to your sponsored exhibition opening reception. We provide the food, drink and promotion. You provide the support! Click here to view the full details and 2017 exhibition schedule.


CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour

Align your business with our nationally recognized public art program, the CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour, an outdoor rotating sculpture walk in the downtown corridor of Mankato and North Mankato. This program is a joint initiative of Twin Rivers and the City Center Partnership. Visit the official CityArt website for a complete list of sponsorship levels and benefits.
