Art-A-Whirl is the country's largest open studio tour. During the event’s three day run, the whole of Northeast Minneapolis opens its doors to the public. It’s a great opportunity to meet artists in their work spaces and purchase work directly from the creative source.
Once again this year, I’ve got a ton of new work on display. Stop by Ingrid Restemayer Studio in the Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St. NE, studio 401-b -- enter from Van Buren Street for quickest access to my place. You’ll have to brave the 4 flights of stairs, but it’s worth it to start at the top and work your way down in this massive building.
Nearly all of the artists that work here open their studios, the galleries have extended hours and feature shows, restaurants and bars have specials for art-viewing visitors. In my studio building alone, the (Northrup King Building) there will be work by more than 200 artists to see. Every year is a different experience and vibe.
The greatest concentration of fabulous things lies in and around the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. Click to download the 2014 Art-A-Whirl map. (NKB is on p.2, quadrant J8)
