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...More
