ALBERT LEA, Minn. (FOX 47) -- The Albert Lea Art Center is debuting a new collection of art work, that showcases the work of its own members.
Until Feb. 15, folks can take a look at the art work that Albert Lea artists have created themselves.
The Albert Lea Art Center Artistic Director Beth Tostenson says that's not the only new thing the center is working on. Coming up in February, the center is partnering up with the Historical Museum to re-purpose old and worn mannequins...into art! She says folks are already coming up with creative ideas.
"They have unique ideas. Body parts, the torsos, the arms, the lower parts...I'm going to make a planter on the lower part on the stand," Tostenson said. "Its just--really cool ideas that have come across, so we are looking forward to what they come up with."
The mannequins will be put on display in the beginning of February and put up for a silent auction on Feb. 21 during the center's Mardi Gras celebration.
