How the DAI supports art in your everyday:

Free ArtDAI
No-cost family-friendly arts & crafts projects are currently offered through Zoom. We provide supply kits for pickup & bring in artists to guide activities.

Birkenstein Art Movement 
Free, year-long experience for seventh graders to develop leadership skills using art practices. Youth learn how to make a change in the community and the power of the creative process. 

Gallery Exhibitions
Our galleries in the St. Louis County Depot building are FREE to the public & open every day from 10 AM to 5 PM. Our exhibition schedule brings contemporary artists & underrepresented narratives to Duluth.

Art Education
Our Lincoln Park building hosts a full schedule of open studio groups, workshops, youth camps, and classes for all ages. We are committed to paying working artists to share their expertise through our programming. Education scholarships become available based on funding. 

Artist Resources & Support
Within our walls, you will find a clay studio, print studio, photography studio, darkroom, and a collection of supplies and tools for artists. On our website, we host artist resources and directories like the BIPOC artists page and Art in Bloom, which feature local artists and their art as giftable items. 

Your donation makes it possible to maintain and expand each of these aspects as Duluth's premier visual arts organization. Thank you for considering us this Give to the Max day and beyond.
