"The best thing about Northeast is its eclectic vibe …[it’s where] old and new Minneapolis meet. The southern portion … is filled with dive bars … around for decades, award-winning new restaurants, breweries and art studios galore that come even more alive during the annual Art-a-Whirl studio tour…The Arts District is a highly walkable area within … that offers a little of everything that makes greater Northeast the neighborhood that it is."
—The Washington Post’s Travel Section "ONE SQUARE MILE: Northeast Arts District"
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District is home to hundreds of artists whose studios and storefronts make it a destination for travelers and a coveted place to live and/or work.
The Northeast Minneapolis Arts District board members are the guardians and voice of this city-designated “one square mile” District. We advocate for preserving and expanding space used to produce art. We support and promote artists, arts and culture, incubate arts-related projects, encourage thoughtful community-connected economic growth, tourism and worldwide cultural artistic exchanges.
