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.

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).

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

When we resume hosting FFAW, if you’d like to host artwork for the First Friday event and list your event in our monthly press release, please contact Lisa Seter lseter@watermarkartcenter.org | 218-444-7570 to set up an appointment to discuss what you need and what we expect. We’ll answer all your questions and provide you with guidelines to make your event a success.
