Cannon Arts Board is pleased to work in partnership with these community organizations to bring you great arts, entertainment, and culture in Cannon Falls and surrounding areas. Here are some of the projects we have supported.
Cannon Falls Community Band
Providing Cannon Falls and surrounding area with quality music concerts and an opportunity for adult area musicians to perform. Under the direction of Mr. Keith French, all are welcome to participate - more information is available of their Facebook page.
Cannon Falls School of Dance
Non-Profit, School of Dance specializing in Classical Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Dances of the World on a regular basis. Ballroom dance classes for adults are offered occasionally throughout the year.
Their mission: To bring the art of Classical Ballet to Cannon Falls youth, while they learn respect for oneself and each other, through a community-supported effort. This school opened their doors in 2015 and enrollment continues to grow.
Cannon Falls Library
Two successful challenges in partnership with Cannon Falls Library, giving local artists of all levels an opportunity to create. Each challenge culminates in an open house / exhibit at the library where community members hear about the submissions from the artists and get to vote on their favorite piece that will become a part of the library's permanent art collection! We look forward to more challenges in the future - stay connected by visiting the CAB website and the Cannon Falls Library often!
