Community Pint Night celebration BEMIDJI, MN – Watermark Art Center will host a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, April 12 at 4:30 p.m. to kickoff construction for the new art center at 505 Bemidji Ave N. Following the groundbreaking, the community is urged to celebrate with Watermark at Bemidji Brewing Company as part of the brewery’s Community Pint Night program. From 5-7 p.m. on April 12, $1 from every tap beverage sold will be donated to the art center. “We’re so excited to have finally reached this stage in our project!” said Lori Forshee-Donnay, Watermark’s executive director. “We appreciate all the support the community has given and hope they can come out to the brewery for a fun, celebratory evening.” Watermark Art Center is a member-supported nonprofit that has operated in downtown Bemidji since 1982. Recently, the art center purchased the former Lakeside Luekens grocery store and is currently accepting donations for the Make Your Mark campaign to transform the building into a cutting edge art center.
