Building Brainerd Schools: Gichi-ziibi Center for the Arts

Incredible: it’s the only word to describe what it’s been like to bear witness to the Gichi-ziibi Center for the Arts project coming to fruition in Brainerd. From the outpouring of community support for the school district to the persistence of those who began this effort so many years ago, we want to congratulate Brainerd Public Schools on an outstanding project; we’re so proud to have been a part of this and all the BPS projects!
