Red Wing, MN –

MN Give to the Max Day is this Thursday, November 15th!  This will be our second year of participating and we would LOVE to top last year’s total of $6,135. GiveMN is a is a collaborative venture to transform philanthropy in Minnesota by growing overall giving and moving more of it online. It was designed and launched by the Minnesota Community Foundation in 2009 in partnership with 14 other funders.

This year, the Red Wing Collectors Society Foundation Board Members, have pledged $3,500 dollars to match any funds that we receive. This year our goal is to reach $10,000!  If everyone could just give a little, just $10, $20, or more then we would be on our way. When we get to the $3,500 mark, the board will then add their $3,500 which gives us a total of $7,000; putting us at 2/3 of the way there. Please help us reach our goal; I know we can do it!

You can give any time by clicking on the Give MN logo below; it will take you to our donation page. Here you can read about us, click the donate button and it will easily walk you through the process.

The mission of the Red Wing Pottery Museum is to preserve Red Wing and other American pottery and to expand the public’s awareness of these wares, not only as an art form but also as a historical reflection of American culture.

The Red Wing Pottery Museum first opened its doors in the historic pottery district of Red Wing, MN in July, 2001. The museum is situated in a retail mall setting, which is located in the original Minnesota Stoneware building dating back to the late 1800’s.

After 12 years at this location, the Red Wing Pottery Museum is thrilled to be moving ahead with the purchase of a 13,000 sq. ft. building located close by known as The Pottery Annex Building.

We have received some wonderful donations which we have on display. The Schleich Red Wing Pottery Museum, of Lincoln, NE, will soon be donating over 5,000 items; “bringing these items home, back to Red Wing, MN.” This will help to create a World Class Red Wing Pottery Museum; allowing us to display a huge spectrum of the clay products produced in Red Wing, MN.
