Located in NE Minneapolis off of Central Ave. This building has the mass majority of artists featured during artist week "Northeast Tours of artists" Fun to go through and see all the different artwork and people.

Every city and town and small town trying to drum up some tourist trade has an art crawl, art day, art hike, art-o-whirl, art attack where you freely wander around galleries and sometimes huge old honking warehouses (like Northrup King) that are thick with studios of artists of every ilk and, depending on the artists' viability, cookies, cheese & crackers,...

There were a wide range of styles and abilities from inexperienced to polished. If we didn't like one room we'd move on and find one we did. The artist with kinetic sculptures was one of our favorites.

One of the main venues for artist studios in Minneapolis' art district. It's especially fun during art-a-whirl in the Fall of the year. Many galleries are in this bu Lying as well as many, many more in the surrounding blocks.

The first Thursday of the month, many (but not all) galleries/studios are open to the public. The art runs the gamut from classical realistic painting to jewelry, felted wool, woven rugs and even a mid-century modern furniture venue. The best idea is to elevate to the top floor of the building and prowl each floor for treasures. Most studios have... More

Cheap rent draws a full spectrum of people trying to get by while creating whatever their heart desires. Some serious artists in there are worth collecting; all are worthy of respect for their flat-out decision to give it a go.

Nice variety of shops/studios most with the artists present. Good parking, easy to get to right off Central Ave. Personalized feel getting to meet the local artists in their own studios.

Go to their website and check out their open house dates. Great time to visit with local artists and purchase locally.

An entire building of artists studios, the NKB is great way to view local contemporary art, and talk with the artists themselves! The NKB is close to lots of great bars and restaurants, as well. Come during Art-A-Whirl, a major art crawl event put on by the North East Minneapolis Artists' Association, and tour many of the other buildings in... More
