25 Years of Art-A-Whirl

Art-A-Whirl® is the largest open studio tour in the country, which happens annually throughout Northeast Minneapolis the third weekend of May. This is our 25th year! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic limiting social interaction, the Art-A-Whirl Online Experience is a way to connect virtually with hundreds of local artists and businesses. Enjoy everything you love about Art-A-Whirl, online!


This website includes maps of Northeast Minneapolis to find participants by site, an online shop of over 800 artists, and an “Experience” section where you can watch over a hundred videos of recorded studio tours, art demos, and musical performances. You can even order food and beverage through NEMAA partner restaurants and breweries.
