This is the place to see working artists. Art-a-Whirl in May is a great time to visit studios, talk to artists, drink wine and/or beer, see all kinds of live music. It is a huge arts focused parties taking place in NE Minneapolis. Looking on the arts district website provides the buildings and maps where artists can be found. There are other days when studios are open to public like second Saturdays in the California Building...just have to check websites. Really nice to meet the people who are creating the art and to talk about their process.
