Art on the Kinni draws a crowd

Art on the Kinni visitors view some art on the Kinnickinnic bridge near Veterans' Park. The oil paintings are by Harold Herderson, who was one of the first artists to participate in Art on the Kinni when the event was created.

Art on the Kinni, Saturday, Sept. 7, drew in a crowd, despite the afternoon's excessive heat. The event is put on by the River Falls Community Arts Base, or CAB. According to CAB board President Steve Preisler, an estimated 4,500 people attended the event. The event spanned Veteran's Park, Heritage Park and the bridge between them, as well as the White Pathway.  

Seventy professional artists participated in Art on the Kinni. According to Preissler, this was an increase from last year's 55 artists. The event also included four "budding artists" selling their creations on the bridge.
