Minnesota Valley NWR - Confluence Gallery

About the Confluence Gallery 

The refuge’s Confluence Gallery, located in the Bloomington Education and Visitor Center, is a venue for emerging and established Minnesota-based artists who reflect the community and excel at creating artwork with a focus on nature and natural elements, ecology, conservation, and/or the beauty of the Minnesota River Valley. The Confluence Gallery aims to serve as a conduit between the natural world and the local community; inspiring, educating, and connecting refuge visitors to the natural world.
