Finally, it's that time of the year again. Art-A-Whirl is this weekend, starting today at 5 and running until 5 on Sunday! Each year the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) presents Art-A-Whirl which is the largest open studio tour in the country. It’s a great opportunity to tour private studios and galleries, connect with the artists, and purchase original artwork. This year you can tour more than 70 locations throughout Northeast Minneapolis, including studio buildings, art galleries, homes, storefronts, businesses, and restaurants. As always the event is free.
Plan your visit with NEMAA's Artist Directory and Guide, which includes information about the NEMAA artists, a map of Northeast Minneapolis and the Art-A-Whirl locations, a dining guide, and more. If it's your first time to an art crawl you're crazy; but, no need to fear because there are some helpful hints on engaging with and buying from artists right here. Awesome!
