FLOW Northside Arts Crawl
FLOW Northside Arts Crawl 2019
Thursday July 25th – Saturday July 27 11:00 am – 9:00 pm daily
FLOW Northside Arts Crawl is a 3-day celebration of the arts in North Minneapolis. Since 2006, FLOW has become both a community celebration and the premier art event in North MPLS.
This year we celebrate the beauty and brilliance of our community with artistic expressions of COLLECTIVE JOY.
FLOW is a self guided tour of studios, galleries, theaters, commercial and vacant spaces over a mile and a half of the West Broadway corridor. From b-boys to ballet, graffiti to graphite, rap to rhapsody, fine artist to arts, practicing to professional, FLOW showcases the great art being made every day on the Northside. FLOW is a program of the West Broadway Coalition that showcases over 300 artists of all ages and experiences at 35 different locations! An exciting weekend of indoor and outdoor activities.
