First Friday and COVID-19

Watermark Art Center is the community coordinator for Bemidji’s First Friday Artwalk, but the Artwalk belongs to all of us.

Watermark is currently open to the public. Read more about what to expect when you visit us →.

Beginning November 1, 2021 we will gladly list other First Friday participants on this page. However, as we, Watermark, can not control any COVID-19 protective measures enacted by other First Friday participants and their visitors, we’ve made the decision to postpone any collective promotion until further notice.  We will re-visit our decision when there is an update to the Executive Order 20-81 (Minnesota).

Please send your First Friday event descriptions to Lisa Seter lseter@watermarkartcenter.org | 218-444-7570
