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.


The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District is currently managed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of NE artists, business owners, and interested community members.
