Studio 400 is a 2,000+ sq foot studio space and artist community located in the Northrup King Building, in the thriving Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. As Public Functionary expands its programming and space, Studio 400 becomes the place to nourish the root of our purpose: centering the creative practices of artists who need a culture of support not provided by mainstream and institutional art systems. And more importantly, making space for them to forge their own paths.

Studio 400 is not a residency program, it is a platform through which artists invest in their own ability to realize an economically viable creative practice and workspace. Within this space, the artists have the autonomy to build community, dedicate to practice and collaborate with each other. The space is curated and managed by the artists. The program includes painters, graphic designers, fashion designers and more. Artists who are self-taught and artists who are traditionally educated are equally valued. Studio 400 prioritizes space for artists of color and historically underserved artists. Studio 400 also supports artists age 30 and under to and cultivate a community of young artists in the Northrup King Building (as there is opportunity for growth in this area). We are committed to addressing disparities locally and nationally for young artists and artists of color to have access to work space and career development opportunities.
