“Great fun at Art-a-Whirl 2012”

Northrup King Building
Ranked #82 of 227 things to do in Minneapolis
Attraction details
Reviewed May 21, 2012

I admit that I'm biased (I have a relative whose studio is in the building), but I really had a great time visiting all of the artists and seeing their work at the 2012 Art-A-Whirl. You have an opportunity to view the work of many, many artists who work in a very diverse range of media - from textiles to ceramic to photography - and much more. Works are housed on multiple floors, and prices range from very affordable pieces to enormous works that are priced accordingly. Wish I lived in Minneapolis so I could visit more often!

The works are really outstanding and the artists are kind and gracious. Go on first Thursdays to get a feel for the entire place and go back to specific studios at your convenience (and the artists) for a more in-depth discussion.

This is a great place to visit on the first Thursday of each month, when they have an open house. Visit with artists and buy some local art -- or just treat it as a free night at a fantastic and diverse art gallery.

The building is a collection of rooms where local artists create and display and sell their works.

Some very good art in a loft setting. Generally studios are not open to the public, so check ahead.
