Art-A-Whirl is the largest open studio tour in the country! Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, Art-A-Whirl will not be held as a normal event. Art-A-Whirl is online, with some individual studios and vendors holding their own open hours. NEMAA will be debuting the NEMAA Online Shop, which will have thousands of member artworks for sale and searchable by medium, subject matter, and price. You will be able to view and purchase the work of hundreds of NEMAA artists all in one place, year-round, from the comfort of your own home.

For Art-A-Whirl weekend (May 14-16, 2021) some individual studios and galleries will have their own hours for in-person visitors, provided that everyone wears masks and observes social distance. We will provide a list of which artists and sites are hosting open hours the weekend of Art-A-Whirl on our website once we get closer to May.


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.
