Your destination…Northeast Minneapolis. Your mission…visit over 400 artists, potters, painters, musicians, glass blowers, and tile makers. And did we mention you only have 18 hours to complete the mission. Which might be the reason they call it Art-A-Whirl.
Art-A-Whirl is an open-studio and gallery tour of Northeast Minneapolis organized by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA). It’s the one big opportunity for you to see the art being produced in the Northeast and it’s free.
Artists of every type including potters, tile makers, painters, sculptors, musicians, photographers, glass blowers, printmakers, and textile designers open their doors to showcase their art in warehouses, homes, storefronts and cafes.
