“Make You Mark With Art” May 2013

We have already started creating & it is an exciting summer with Aldrich Arts Collaborative.  We are gathering local artists, businesses, organizations, and neighbors in Minneapolis.


With a generous grant from MRAC*, we will be beginning the Garden Mural Project, our second public art piece with the community July 2013.


There are many opportunities to volunteer, show your work, feature your local business, & learn in one of our workshops or classes.  Connect with the community through creativity.

*This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund
