Granite Falls is becoming a makers and artisan destination community. We will be the first town of our size to have an official City Artist in Residence program with the artist starting in the summer of 2020. The artist will have an office at Granite Falls City Hall which is also on Prentice St. The money would go to develop the City Artist in Residence program and a small loan program to help individual artists and creatives to start their own business. Prentice Street is a scenic main street along the Minnesota River with the only footbridge across the river. Our organization has saved one building from flood mitigation, it's now the Granite Area Arts Council gallery and gift shop.
