Music festival nets $2K for 410 Project

MANKATO — The seventh annual Post-Holiday Extravaganza last weekend in Mankato raised more than $2,000 for the 410 Project art gallery.

The two-day festival of music and art was organized by the Midwest Art Catalyst, a Mankato-based nonprofit largely comprised of visual and performing artists that holds a few large events each year to fund art and music opportunities for area children.

In addition to an annual children's art show, the 410 Project also hosts regular children's art classes. For more information, visit:
