Red Wing is your destination for arts and entertainment. While still known primarily for our shoes, historic pottery, and majestic Mississippi bluffs, Red Wing should also be known as a river-town with world-class arts and live music.
Sharing live art experiences with friends, family, and neighbors has always been a vital way to entertain, educate, and enlighten a community. Check out these Red Wing destinations for the arts and make plans to share one of these experiences with your friends and family.
Look to the Sheldon Theatre for a truly world-class experience, from the nationally-recognized artists that perform there to the intricate architectural details of the building itself. Whether you’re looking for comedy, music, or theatre, you’ll find something for you on their calendar.
Red Wing Arts has been supporting the best local and regional artists since 1952. From their rotating gallery shows throughout the year to their ever changing gift shop full of for-sale works, you’ll always find something new to see. Be sure to add this to your list of must-visit destinations for great holiday shopping and gift ideas that support local artists.
Or check out The Anderson Center at Tower View! At this unique historic-registered landmark, you can stroll through ever-changing exhibits, listen to contemporary writers present their work, or participate in the art yourself with a class. With services for creative people of all kinds – writers, poets, visual artists, scholars, and others – you’ll never run out of new experiences.
