The Brainerd Public Library announced the 11 winners of the people’s choice award in the Mississippi River Bridge Art Contest.

Forty-six pieces of art were submitted for the contest, which ended Aug. 10. The bridge crossing the Mississippi River in Brainerd on Washington Street was the focus of the Brainerd Public Library’s art contest this summer. Construction of the bridge, which is made of concrete in an art deco style, was completed in 1932.

The art winners are: Emma Cullett, Jack Daudt, Ella Kauffman, Theresa Klasky, Andi Kleist, Mary Bess Knight, Mary K. Lyons, Hannah Moddes, Barbara J. Morgan, Beverly Simmonds and Shelly Thelen.

All entries will be displayed at the library through Sept. 30 and the exhibit may be viewed any time the library is open. The library’s hours are 9 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. The library is closed on Sunday.

This free Legacy project is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
