For our part of Minneapolis the true mark of spring’s end is Art-A-Whirl weekend. One of the largest art crawls in the US, Art-A-Whirl sprawls over the weekend of May 18th, 19th and 20th and 3 square miles of Northeast Minneapolis. Our cozy studio is a bit off the beaten path but we are doing out best to bring the festivities to our block. We’ve invited 16 artists to share our space and show off their work.
Starting Friday May 18th at 5:00 we will open our studio, AirBnB and back yard to the public. You will have a chance to meet the artists, check out the gallery in apartment above the studio and watch demonstrations on axe carving and bowl turning in the back yard area. Kids sewing activities and face painting will also be happening. We are excited to bring visitors to our part of NE Minneapolis and carry on the Art-A-Whirl tradition.
Friday May 18th, 5:00-10:00 pm
Saturday May 19th, noon-8:00 pm
Sunday May 20th, noon-5:00 pm
There will be plenty of free parking in front of our studio on Johnson St NE, 28th & 29th Ave NE.
