We support and empower artists in St. Paul.
Your donation promotes the arts in St. Paul. Established in 1977, the Saint Paul Art Collective (SPAC) empowers St. Paul artists through expanding connections and inspirational spaces in which to create and grow. Recognizing that art is essential for a healthy and vibrant community, SPAC has pioneered such major public events as the biannual Saint Paul Art Crawl and special projects like the founding of the first artist residence cooperative in Saint Paul. The Art Crawl occurs every spring and fall, attracting tens of thousands of visitors to view and purchase art, meet artists, tour studio buildings, and be a part of the cultural life of the city.
SPAC celebrated its 26th anniversary of Art Crawls in 2017 and has celebrated its 40th anniversary as an organization this year. For three days in the spring and fall the city comes alive with art as each Art Crawl features over 300 artists in 29 locations throughout the St. Paul. Other SPAC programs include Lowertown First Fridays, a monthly open studio and performance event that includes interactive workshops, Art in the Park, a gallery space in CHS Field that provides Saint Paul Saints fans with access to the arts during 50+ home baseball games, and display opportunities for St Paul artists throughout the year in locations such as Town Square and AZ Gallery.
St. Paul Art Collective will use your donation to enhance our current programming and provide new opportunities for artists.
