What is First Thursdays?

First Thursdays is the Open Studio and Gallery Tour held the first Thursday of each month in the NE Minneapolis Arts District. Many Northeast artists open their doors and invite the public into their studios. With a relaxed atmosphere, visitors are welcome to get to know the artist, ask questions, and discuss their creative process. First Thursdays is a great experience for the art collector and enthusiast.
