Meet the team
Initially our team assembled as a group of volunteers authorized by the City of Sauk Centre to fund-raise and oversee the rehabilitation and updates to the Sauk Centre Band Shell. Since then we have had the pleasure of involving many members of the community according to the project interest & need.
We are in coordination with the Community Legacy Foundation and are working solely with local businesses. We hope you join with us in this journey to Artify Sauk Centre.
"The group [above] quickly formed as [the Band Shell] project called for collaboration among people with expertise in order to move forward."
Sara Thompson joined the group 2017 catching the "artify" initiative drift. She has been key in communicating contracts with artists and writing grants and support letters. She has a true love for the community.
Gwen Kranz is taking on perhaps the most ambitious project for the group, the Makerspace. Her care for the community is evident in her award winning efforts and results with the Community Garden.
Marisa George is the Library Services Coordinator for GRRL Sauk Centre. She has years of library, technology, training and art/design experience. She is a perpetual student, whose goal is to share the joy of creativity and life long learning with others.
