Solar Arts Building

The Solar Arts Building is a staple in Northeast Minneapolis’ Arts District. This artist haven is in a historic building that has been transformed into a modern, environmentally friendly hub for the creative community. The historic character of the building has been retained – with its well-worn wood and cast iron – and renovated it using only the most eco-friendly materials and equipment. If you look above, you’ll see the building is topped with 109 solar panels to let the sun power the pure creativity of its tenants. These tenants include more than a dozen artists and creative professionals, Indeed Brewing Company, and a great event space to play host to the thriving arts scene. The studios are open to public for several events throughout the year, including First Thursdays (the first Thursday of each month from 5-9 p.m.), Art-A-Whirl and other special events.
