About the Saint Paul Arts Crawl
Saint Paul Arts Crawl is presented each spring and fall by the Collective, who relies on artists and others to volunteer their time and resources. The crawl began in 1977 when founding artists of the St. Paul Art Collective held their first group exhibition at Union Depot. The Collective continued to host exhibits in the downtown area in the following years before coordinating the first multi-building, open studio event in Lowertown in 1991. In the mid-2000s, the crawl expanded to also include a variety of other Saint Paul neighborhoods.
This spring the dates include:
Friday April 26 (6–10 PM), Saturday April 27 (12–8 PM), and Sunday April 28 (12–5PM) For more information: https://www.saintpaulartcrawl.org
