May 4 & 5, 2013
The Spring Mississippi River Valley Art Drive
The 6th MRVAD self-guided art drive

The artisans of MRVAD invite you to join them in their home studios and special galleries for this artist supported and created event.

An opportunity to interact with the artist during the creative process, to experience personally their inspirational setting, or to peer behind the final product and look into their work space where it all happened, is an experience not frequently available to the public.

This spring art drive boasts additional artist venues and wider diversification of art expression and creativity. Go to www.MRVAD.com to research each artist in more detail, hours of availability, print a map, and locate a possible trip plan that fascinates your art desires!
