With its unique character and visual appeal, several high profile Minnesota groups have chosen to set all or part of their music videos in the Solar Arts Building. Here are our favorites.
This video highlights the unique third floor event space (complete with the old boiler doors!). We especially love that this video (a City Pages must see, btw) was create by a Solar Arts artist!
Despite being shot in the dark and backlit, the fact that the artist chose to shoot this video in the building is a testament to the power of its character on this within.
Another video that embraces the style of the building, this video was shot while the back space (now occupied by the St. Croix Chocolate Company) was under renovation.
Yet another band that used the timelessness of this historic building’s construction to give the perfect feel to their video.
