In order to participate in Art-A-Whirl, you must be a member of NEMAA. Membership is open to all. 

Membership runs through the calendar year. For Art-A-Whirl 2022, members will need to join by March 1, 2022 in order to be included in the printed NEMAA Member Directory & Art-A-Whirl Guide.

Please note: NEMAA is not printing a Directory & Guide in 2021. All member info will be online.

Artists & Galleries

Individual Artist members (including Student & Emerging) and Professional Gallery members have the option to use NEMAA’s platform to build an online shop in addition to their member profile. Members hosting open hours during Art-A-Whirl Weekend must opt-in to indicate which days they are open in order to be included in the “Who’s Open” section of the online Art-A-Whirl Map.

For Businesses & Nonprofits (NPOs)

Business and nonprofit members will be included in NEMAA’s online directory as well as map for Art-A-Whirl. If hosting artists, the artists should also be NEMAA members, so that your location will accurately be indicated as an art site.

For those interested in sponsoring Art-A-Whirl in 2022, Sponsorship Tiers are available here.



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.
