Casket Arts Community 2017 Calendar
The Casket Arts Community houses three of the newest old factory buildings in Northeast Minneapolis, plus the Franconia in the City Sculpture Park. The three historic structures - the Casket Arts Building, the Carriage House and the Factory, were converted to studios in 2006. The structures are stunning - aged brick, century old wood floors, cast concrete, ancient iron and steel. All the buildings have been beautifully restored to maintain their historic character.
Over 140 artists and art-based businesses inhabit the Casket Arts Community. Most of its tenants run full-time working studios, but open their work spaces for First Thursdays every month as well as for Art-a-Whirl, Open Casket and many other exhibits and showings throughout the year.
