Council Member's Message


Our Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, which is such a significant driver of our city's creative economy, is hard at work 365 days of the year. Much of this work takes place outside the public view, so it's always a treat when the doors get opened up and the general public gets invited in to rub shoulders with the artists, makers and designers. One such occasion is Open District, when five buildings in our Arts District will feature open studios, music and interactive arts activities from 5 pm on Friday, November 2 until 5 pm on Sunday, November4. Check out some art making this weekend at the following locations: 

Art Attack at the Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson Street NE

Art This Way at the Solar Arts Building, 711 - 15th Avenue NE

California Dreamin' at the California Building, 2205 California Street NE

Open Casket at the Casket Arts Building, 1720 - 17th Avenue NE

Rogue Buddha Gallery, 357 - 13th Avenue NE

This is a welcome opportunity to view the work of hundreds of artists and see examples of just some of the ways they are contributing to the vitality of our community and the vibrancy of our local economy. It's also a chance to explore some of the amazing buildings that anchor our arts district. These historic structures originally served our area's industry and manufacturing, and now have new life as creatively repurposed artistic and maker space.
