Community Mural Design Workshop Coon Rapids Campus
Families Welcome Donuts and Coffee Serviced Anoka-Ramsey Community College was recently awarded an arts learning grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board to bring a community mural to the Coon Rapids Campus. As a community-based project, the mural is intended to help tell the story of what community means to us. Join the Anoka-Ramsey Art Department and Minneapolis-based, nationally recognized mural artist Greta McLain for a design workshop and help influence the 1,000 sq. ft. mural to help reflect our diverse understanding of community. All Anoka-Ramsey and Coon Rapids community members are welcome. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

"I was Active Duty in the USMC for four years. When I came back to Minnesota from the Marines, I got a job as a CNA at a nursing home and started school full-time to pursue my goal of becoming a Nurse. The Veteran Club at the Coon Rapids campus is wonderful. Very helpful staff and students, as well as community involvement." -Abby Krause '18 Learn more about the Veterans Club and Veterans Services on our website.

“I think the best aspect of Anoka-Ramsey is the people. Everyone here, staff and students alike, feels super down to earth, and I'm never too scared or nervous to engage in conversation with them… We all help each other with our problems and I think that's one of my biggest reasons I'm glad I came here.”
