DC schools accepting Fine Arts Hall of Fame nominations

DASSEL, COKATO, MN – It’s safe to say that the Dassel-Cokato fine arts community does not hide its talents under a basket. From instrumentals to theatricals to ceramics, DC has its share of artists, and the school district has come up with a new way of recognizing some of its extraordinary artists: the DC Fine Arts Hall of Fame.

The purpose “is to give [biennial] recognition to those individuals who have exemplified the DC fine arts programs, either while attending, teaching, or volunteering for the DC School District,” according to Fine Arts Hall of Fame Committee member Deb Moen.

These can include contributions to music, theater, or visual arts.

Nominations are due in the DC activities office Friday, June 1.
