The 19th annual Art Attack is back and is happening on November 4, 5 and 6 at the Northrup King Building in Northeast Minneapolis.

This year, in response to the current political climate, the Northrup King Building is choosing to promote peace and love through visual art, interactive art activities, writing and music.

It will be a fun-filled, family-friendly weekend, providing you the opportunity to browse and buy art from the private studios of over 250 painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers, jewelers, clothing designers, textile artists, glass blowers, ceramists, and more.

Participate in Art

Visitors are encouraged to engage in the Global Thoughts on Peace and Love in the Third Floor Gallery (#332) throughout the weekend. People of all backgrounds will have a chance to write their thoughts on what peace and/or love mean to them and to have it assembled into an installation to share with others.

And on Saturday, November 5, the Northrup King Building is joining forces with Jane Elias from Simply Jane/Artable to create a large 1960’s style Peace and Love mural.

Art Attack visitors can participate in painting the mural or paint their own 6″ x 6″ canvas and share the peace and love.

What’s more, a live performance by musician, Mare Lennon, will bring us back to the music of the Beatles, Carol King and Joanie Mitchell on Saturday, and live music, art demonstrations and food truck will be the norm all weekend long.

This is a free event with lots of free parking. The hours are:

  • Friday, November 4th          5:00 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Saturday, November 5th     12:00 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Sunday, November 6th        12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Northrup King Building is located at 1500 Jackson St. NE. in Minneapolis.
