Also on view in the Atrium Gallery is a display featuring the Somerset Bench Project, a community art project involving 38 special education elementary and high school students from the Somerset School District as well as dozens of community volunteers and local businesses.
This bench, which now sits in Larry Forrest Memorial Park in downtown Somerset, is one of five completed benches throughout the St. Croix Valley as part of a partnership between The Phipps and the St. Croix Valley Community Foundation. The other benches are in St. Croix Falls, Hudson, Prescott and Bayport, Minn. A sixth bench is scheduled to be completed in Marine on St. Croix, Minn., in June.
Galleries hours are Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 4:30 p.m.; and one hour before and through intermission of all performances in The Phipps theaters.
