Thinking of donating to NE Mpls. Arts District?
You can do it anytime by going to our Donate page on this website. From May 1-11 we’ll also be on GiveMN.org participating in SpringForwardMN. https://www.givemn.org/organization/Northeast-Minneapolis-Arts-District.
One of our goals for SpringForwardMN is to raise funds to pay photographers to document the Arts District for uses like this effort. To put our best foot forward while properly compensating artists.
Also, whenever you see a themed gallery exhibit, there’s an artistic curator or curators behind the flow and presentation of the work. NE Arts District recently mounted two exhibits in prime locations at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport through the Arts@MSP Program (up through end of 2021). Behind the scenes, curatorial pairs juried and organized the 34 artists’ work, learning from each other and a coordinator.
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District seeks to replicate this learning opportunity, whether it’s at the airport again (we hope to be chosen again) or in one of the many venues so looking forward to reopening when safe. Some of the monies raised through SpringForwardMN will be earmarked for outreach to talent in underrepresented and BIPOC communities and to pay curators and coordinators fair stipends. Supporting learning by doing, contributions for these two goals will be matched 1 to 1 by the Arts District.
