Celebrate a #BrightGreenFuture

A fun twist on the classic ribbon cutting ceremony, the public event will celebrate urban renewal, Northeast Minneapolis, and the Bright Green Future that lies ahead.

At the Solar Arts Building, we appreciate all the support and warmth that has come from our neighbors in the Northeast, and our brothers and sisters in the Minnesota arts community.

That is why we would like you to come celebrate not just this new space, but the promise it represents. A model for urban renewal, the Solar Arts Building shows that preservation done right can be as much about our bright future as our proud past.

Enjoy refreshments, tours, & photo opportunities, then take a solar-powered First Thursday tour of some of Minnesota’s most celebrated creative professionals.
