First Thursdays in the Arts District

  • Northrup King Building

June's First Thursday event includes FREE ROOT BEER FLOATS at the main entrance of the Northrup King Building on Jackson Street. My studio is directly up the stairs on the 2nd floor from this entrance.

First Thursdays in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District is an Open Studio and Gallery Tour held the first Thursday of each month. Many NEMAA member artists and galleries open their doors and invite you into their studios. With a more relaxed atmosphere, this mini-Art-A-Whirl is a great experience for the art collector and browser.

The Northrup King Building is home to over 200 working artists, many of which are open for this monthly event!

Presented by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA), Art-A-Whirl is an open studio tour in Northeast Minneapolis.

Over the last 20 years, it has become the largest open studio tour in the country.

Art-A-Whirl takes place annually throughout Northeast Minneapolis, the third weekend of May. This event is free and open to the public.

Art Attack 2016

  • Megan Bell Studio

It started out as an idea for a small group show in 1999 and has since blossomed into one of the biggest open studio events in the state! 19 years in, we've now got 250+ artists with studios on all four floors of the historic Northrup King Building. 

Art Attack is a wonderful opportunity to buy unique, locally made gifts while supporting small, independent businesses or just a great excuse to window shop and take in all of the beauty and creativity the artists of Northrup King have to offer. There's truly something for EVERYONE!

This year, I'm excited to announce that I will have special guest artist, Ernest Miller Ceramics, showing with me! 

Hope to see you there!
