Legacy Events


2017 Arts and Cultural Heritage Series

This fall, LARL will welcome a series of fantastic performers as we celebrate the talent and stories of Minnesota, thanks to funding from the Minnesota Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. To stay up-to-date on upcoming Legacy events, join our mailing list!


legacyMN-Library-Legacy-Logo_smallIn November 2008, Minnesota voters approved a constitutional amendment to dedicate funds for Minnesota’s Outdoor Heritage, Clean Water, Parks and Trails, and Arts and Cultural Heritage. Under the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF) Minnesota’s 300+ public libraries receive funding distributed through existing formulas to the 12 Minnesota Regional Library Systems to provide programs and services in four areas: arts (visual, performing and media), culture, literary and Minnesota history. The law states that these funds are intended “for regional programs and working with arts and cultural partners.”
