The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District is home to hundreds of artists representing all mediums–dance to painting, sculpture to graphic design. Although you’re likely to find artists working in most commercial buildings within District boundaries, there are a few major studio buildings that also sponsor “open studio” events that welcome the general public.
