Join Artspace in the Twin Cities on October 14 and 15 as we welcome artists, community and civic leaders, non-profit partners, and creative folk from across the country for a unique two-day experience. Attendees will experience the St. Paul Art Crawl and tour studios; join artist talks and workshops on creative placemaking; and visit phenomenal places where arts and community intertwine. The event culminates on Saturday night with the Breaking Ground Celebration and the Artspace Artist Awards. 

The 2016 Artspace Awards will be presented at Breaking Ground – The Artspace Celebration at a reception on October 15.

In addition to the art crawl, the evening will include a reception and the presentation of the Artspace Artist Awards, honoring three resident artists and one arts supporter who have shown a commitment to advancing the arts and enriching their communities. Each Artspace Award is named for an artist or an Artspace supporter who dedicated his or her life, in part, to making a difference in the arts community and in the larger community as well.
