During the annual Art a Whirl -- this area vies with the Minnesota State Fair, but on a weekend afternoon the studios are just well attended, and you will have more time to visit with gallery owners, and artists. Worth a visit -- lots to...More

There were a wide range of styles and abilities from inexperienced to polished. If we didn't like one room we'd move on and find one we did. The artist with kinetic sculptures was one of our favorites.

Cheap rent draws a full spectrum of people trying to get by while creating whatever their heart desires. Some serious artists in there are worth collecting; all are worthy of respect for their flat-out decision to give it a go.

Nice variety of shops/studios most with the artists present. Good parking, easy to get to right off Central Ave. Personalized feel getting to meet the local artists in their own studios.
