MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The children at Pillsbury Elementary school got to see passion first-hand when artist Rick Kelley recently came to class.

“You get to put a lot of passion into it — you get to put a lot of feelings,” he said. “And you can express a lot of things into art.”

His inspiration was 9/11 and some of his work reflects on that tragic day.

“People were very patriotic after 9/11 and felt that unconditional love,” Kelley said.

And now you get a chance to see his work all over the Twin Cities this weekend. Also, veterans can take home a print of any of his works for free this Memorial Day.

Kelley will be at the Kelley Gallery in Hudson, Wis,, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

On Sunday he’ll be at Deck the Walls from 1 to 5 p.m. and come Monday, he’ll be at Memorial Day Sovereign Estates in Waconia, from 1 to 5 p.m.
