The Plains Art Museum, Fargo, has received a $10,000 grant from Xcel Energy to help support the museum’s Kid Quest program, a free art program for families held on the first Saturday of the month from October through April.
Kid Quest offers children and parents the opportunity to explore the art galleries and then create an art project together at the Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity at the museum.
More than 2,000 youth and adults attend the free Kid Quest programs each year. The grant will also help the museum offer a gallery and studio program for teens in the coming year.
