Map & Directions
WORKSHOP is open on Friday, Saturday & Sunday of Art-A-Whirl weekend.
Art-A-WhirlⓇ is the largest open studio tour in the country, which happens annually throughout Northeast Minneapolis the third weekend of May. We’re thrilled to announce that for Art-A-Whirl 2022, we are dedicating our studio space to artists specializing in printmaking, design, illustration and much more.
For Art-A-Whirl weekend, WORKSHOP® is transforming to The Print Shop: a space for commercial-leaning art. We’re celebrating the type of art that shows up on your walls, in your closet, or as a gift to someone special. Bold colors, pattern, typography are all welcome here. Posters, buttons, zines, patches, stickers, mugs, shirts, books, prints, cards…these items – and more – can all be found at The Print Shop!
Our studio at 1300 Quincy St – located directly across from Art-A-Whirl headquarters and neighboring Able, Indeed and Centro, is at the center of the Art-A-Whirl planned activities. We’re also partnering with our nextdoor neighbors at Q.Arma Studio to host musicians on an outdoor stage throughout the weekend – including WORKSHOP® team member, Alyse Carbonell.
The talented artists we will be hosting and celebrating over the weekend (in alphabetical order) include:
