Office Updates

We wanted to post a reminder about our office schedule, which at this moment is altered to ensure the health and safety of everyone as we continue to navigate this pandemic. Our office, located inside the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji, is currently open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays ONLY from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and is staffed on a rotation basis. Otherwise, staff continues to work from home and is available Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. via email.

We stand ready to answer questions, discuss ideas for projects, preview applications to make suggestions, and offer technical assistance as required. Email us at, send us a message via facebook, or call and leave a message at 218-751-5447 (toll free 800-275-5447) and we will call you back. We can even set up a face-to-face appointment via Zoom to discuss your application. Let us know how we can help!
