This past weekend marked the 20th anniversary of Minneapolis’ Art-A-Whirl. The weekend is host to the largest open studio tour in the entire country. Packed with a wide variety of activities, including: live music, art galleries, and lots of open block parties – Minneapolis really does it right on this weekend. With what looked like a gloomy weekend leading up to the festival, it ended up being a rather sunny and enjoyable weekend (until dusk hit). A few highlights from the weekend included Pho and Black Market Brass throwing down at Bauhaus Brewery. Anyways, all in all we had a great time and already are planning for the week ahead. Take a look through a few photos if you like, otherwise stay tuned for more to come!
