The A+ Art Club, an Autism and the Arts program of the Northfield Arts Guild. For the past six years, young men and women on the autism spectrum have been working with local artists (in this film, Wendell Arneson and Jan Shoger) and several art students from St. Olaf College. This marvelous program was created by Northfield native, Laura Goodwin and in the film she motivates and directs the young artists. An inspirational and engaging film (25 minutes long).

Sidewalk Poetry – Sidewalk Poetry Project
“Sidewalk Poetry” was originally created in 2013, but never had a proper premiere. Paul Krause was commissioned by the Arts and Culture Commission of Northfield to chronicle the creation of that year’s sidewalk poems, so you’ll see how the poems were chosen and how they were transferred to the sidewalks around town. You see the poems in our sidewalks, now take the time to see behind the scenes and marvel at the creativity of our community members.(25 minutes long)

Rain on Mars – Young Sculptors Project
“Rain on Mars” was commissioned by the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC). The film tracks thirteen Northfield High School students and their mentors as they struggle to decide on the one sculpture that will be placed on Division Street in front of the library. It is an amazing story of competition, cooperation and persistence as they work to complete the sculpture. (75 minutes long).
