About the District
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District contains a diverse mix of businesses, restaurants, parks, art galleries, and studios as well as industrial and residential property. Warehouses and rail yards are interspersed with homes, churches and family-run businesses. Artists populate many of the historic and formerly industrial buildings, which have been re-purposed and renovated into studios, galleries and performance spaces. Independent galleries have sprung up throughout Northeast, with a concentration along the District’s 13th Avenue.
In 2014, the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District was named ‘Best Arts District’ by the readers of USAToday.
