10313693_502961529805913_1925575349153095828_nArt-A-Whirl is a big, festive open studio tour sponsored by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association that takes place annually in NE Minneapolis. Grace Lutheran was part of Art-A-Whirl in 2013 and 2014 and featured art, music, food and actives for children.

In 2017, Grace Lutheran Church will be hosting two Art-A-Whirl events. On Saturday, May 20th and Sunday, May 21st, we’ll have a fabrics exhibit in our sanctuary space, curated by our administration Jennifer Schultz.

On Sunday, May 21st, we’ll host an interactive community art project: building a box city. We’ll have art and craft supplies of every kind and tons of cardboard — the rest is up to you! What does a city need? Skyscrapers, houses, a library, a school? How about a waterpark or a zoo or even a dinosaur exhibit? Maybe your kids want to grow up to be firefighters, or animal doctors, or archeologists…. so let’s build a fire station, a vet clinic, and a big box of dirt to dig in. Let’s build an amazing city together!  Sunday, May 21, 12 PM – 5 PM.
