Art possesses the unique super power of bringing people together. The Nemeth Art Center in Park Rapids, MN is hosting a unique arts collaboration this summer that has connected Columbian-born visual artist Luisa Fernanda Garcia-Gomez with northern Minnesota textile artist Bruce Engebretson. Together, Luisa and Bruce are spending the summer working on projects at the Nemeth, a collaboration the Nemeth calls “Weaving Community Together”. Throughout the summer, Luisa is working with community members on a variety of visual art projects while Bruce is working at his loom inside creating a large tapestry inspired by Luisa’s exibit at the Nemeth called “Impossible Landscapes.”
