Jerri Neddermeyer is one of the most fascinating people in Eagan. She is an artist, a potter, a writer, a poet, a musician, a teacher, an entrepreneur, and the co-founder of Eagan’s newest arts nonprofit – Art Works.
In this interview with Mike Supina (also a council member of City of Eagan) we discuss the value of the arts in our community, and how artists sometimes have to push back against attempts to devalue their work. We also learn how an artist reconciles the expression of their creative spirit with producing art as a marketable commodity. Lastly, we talk about the progression of Art Works from the dream stage to an institution that today occupies a prominent build right here in the heart of Eagan, filled with beautiful art and creative people.
