When is Art-A-Whirl 2022?

May 20—22, 2022. Hey! The dates and the year match!

Is Art-A-Whirl in person this year?

We are planning an in-person Art-A-Whirl for 2022. We are continuing to monitor news about the ongoing COVID pandemic, and will follow recommended guidelines from the CDC, state, and city officials.

How do I participate?

View our How to Participate page! You need to join NEMAA by March 1, 2022 in order to be included in the printed Directory & Art-A-Whirl Guide. After that date, you will be represented online only.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Some sites may require visitors to wear masks, so bring yours along just in case.

Can I bring my dog?

That may not be the best idea. Crowds and noise can be really stressful for pups, and some people are not comfortable with animals in their spaces. So unless your dog is a service animal, consider leaving your pets at home.

Is Art-A-Whirl my only chance this year to experience the Northeast art scene?

Heck no! Several studio buildings hold monthly Open Studios, and fall open studio events like Art Attack, Open Casket, Thorp Warp, and more will be held on November 4—6, 2022. Check out NEMAA’s Events page for all the cool happenings that our 1,000+ members are up to, and sign up for our monthly Audience Newsletter to stay in the loop!


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