The 1st Thursday of every month means Open Studio Tours in the Northrup King Building from 5-9pm. There are over 130 artists in my building. If you want to support local artists, or even get to know local artists, this is the time to do it.
If I may suggest, enter the building by the security desk and pick up a bunch of artist postcards in the entryway, then go to the 2nd Floor and take a left. I'm the first door on the left. (Before I moved from the 4th floor to the 2nd, I would suggest starting on the top floor and go down, but know I see the wisdom of starting on the 2nd floor).
I have some favorite artists in the building that you will also want to see while you are here:
Megan Bell Honigman-painter, Ste 274 (My studiomate!)
Lindsy Halleckson -painter, Ste 266
Karin Jacobson-jewelry, Ste 288
Sara Jorde and Dan Marshall -photography, Ste 258
Sean Turbidy-print making, Ste 272
And many more on floors 3 and 4.
Stop by tonight:
