Willmar, Minn., coffee mugs to be unveiled today, displayed downtown


After three months, 20 area artists will finally be able to show off their work as their wooden coffee mugs are set to be unveiled tonight during the Willmar Fests Downtown Block Party.

The Willmar Area Arts Council and the Willmar Design Center teamed up to bring back the Kaffe Fest history by giving local artists a wooden coffee mug to design. The mugs will be on display downtown throughout the summer and auctioned off during the final Becker Market on Sept. 29.
