Rain on Mars: Northfield Young Sculptors’ Project was funded, in part, by a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC). Filming began in October of 2015 and finished with the sculpture’s reveal in June of 2016. The sculpture is the fourth in a series of sculptures created by Northfield High School art students. The sculptures were also funded with grants from SEMAC.
The film (runtime of 57 minutes) premiered in August, 2016 and was shown again at the Weitz Cinema, Carleton College in late November of 2016. It has been submitted to Twin Cities Public Television for broadcast regionally on TPT’s Minnesota Channel.
