It’s a simple question:  Are you ready for Art-A-Whirl? Or more to the point: Are you ready for the best art sale in the official best art district in the nation?  We know we at Solar Arts are ready—or are going to be ready, anyway. While the seasons have been changing, our artists have been creating, getting ready for the big weekend that’s just ahead.

#ArtAWhirl, in case you somehow didn’t know, is the open studio tour of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District.  The event, presented by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association and its members, provides an amazing, one of a kind opportunity to tour hundreds of open studios, to browse and buy original art from private local artist studios. In fact, over the last 20 years, it has become the largest open studio tour in the country!

And in all honesty, Art-A-Whirl is just a great time. Some folks even celebrate it like Art Christmas—we know we do at Solar Arts. So if you’re not yet ready, get ready, because we’ll be excited to see you on May 15, 16, 17!

A bonafide art experience to suit all fancies.
