About the Museum
The Northrup King Building is a working artists building located in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. It is home to over 230 tenants, including a creative center to over 190 artists and various small business and nonprofit organizations. It includes opportunities year round to shop for art, apparel, furniture, and more.
The Northrup King Building is actually a complex of 10 buildings first constructed in 1917. The building was originally built by the Northrup King & Co. seed company and it occupied the building until the late 1980s when it was sold to private owners. The building today has gone through many renovations to become a creative center. It is open the first Thursday of every month from 5 to 9 pm and is home to two of the twin cities' biggest shows - Art-A-Whirl, which takes place in the spring and Art Attack, which takes place in the fall.
