Help us raise the money for the matching grant to complete this project during the Spring of 2023! With every donation of $50+, you will receive a signed print from the artist, Arnie Weimer. Donations and prints are available at The Beanery Café & Roastery and at Green Owl Gallery. Public art seeks to inspire and enhance culture and the arts in downtown Aitkin, transforming the visual landscape. There is aesthetic value of placing murals in public areas. Murals have been, and are an increasingly popular public art form that adds vibrancy and vitality to the built landscape.

Aitkin Native and Artist, Arnie Weimer, has created a mural he made specifically for Aitkin entitled Song of the Seasons. The mural has elements of the cubist style and portrays some elements of the evolution as an artist. Arnie shared, “My interest in the cubist style as well as my love of Aitkin are represented in this painting.” The panels of the mural represent the progression of the seasons in the north country. Arnie spent four months designing and painting the mural which has a scale of 2 inches to a foot. He has donated his artistic concept to our community of Aitkin and can be viewed at The Beanery Cafe & Roastery in downtown Aitkin.
