July 24th Meeting

Just a reminder that our next meeting is Tuesday, July 24th from 6:30-8pm at the Shakopee Library.

We will be discussing the final touches on the Scott County Fair booth and the MN River Arts Fair booth, and will be reviewing the final draft of our Fire Station Arts proposal.

Please join us with new ideas to help spread art throughout the community!


Thursday, July 12, 2012

do you have 2-3 hours at the end of the month?

This is my last chance to try to persuade you to sign up to help man our booths at the end of July. Please help spread the word about our new organization! Both events will be great opportunities for public outreach about our firestation arts proposal! Even if you don't know much about our organization yet, but just want to help support us in our initiative, we'd love to have you help in the booth!

Meeting Tonite!


Just a reminder of our informational and planning meeting tonite, Tuesday, July 10th from 6:30-8pm at the Shakopee Library large meeting room on the main floor.

We encourage attendance of anyone interested in: 
  • joining our organization
  • contributing to the business plan for the Fire Station Arts proposal to the city council
  • planning the upcoming booths for the Scott County Fair & MN River Arts Fair at the Landing

Regarding the booths, we still need MANY more volunteers to make these booths successful. Because the events fall on the same weekend, if we do not have enough volunteers to fill all the available time slots, we will have to consider dropping one of the events. Even if you only have an hour to volunteer, please consider signing up for either event at:

Fair Volunteers Needed!


In March, we were proud to announce the formation of our non-profit group, River Valley Cooperative Arts (RVCA). This parent non-profit is designed to translate the message, energy & momentum of the Fire Station Arts initiative - allowing for future growth and scale-ability.


Please help RVCA spread the word about our new organization by volunteering in our booths at the Scott County Fair in Jordan or the inaugural Minnesota River Arts Fair at The Landing! Both events fall on the last weekend in July, so we really need many volunteers to help out.


You can sign up by clicking on the links below and enter in your contact information. Please sign up for as many days as possible. Tell your family and friends! School age kids are welcome to help at the Scott County Fair booth (we will have a spin art project for kids in the booth that kids love to help with) but we would like to limit it to 2 children during a shift.

Scott County Fair @ Scott County Fairgrounds July 25-29
MN River Arts Fair @ The Landing July 28-29

If the exact time of a shift does not work for you, please contact us and we can rearrange a shift to fit your schedule.
