Thorp Building

The historic Thorp Building is a unique complex of creative industrial spaces, art studios and galleries, businesses, roaming hallways, and Northeast Minneapolis artifacts. Located in the heart of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District on Central Avenue, the Thorp extends from the train tracks just north of Broadway to 18th Avenue in the triangular shape of a slice of pie. The Thorp leaves visitors in awe and bewilderment; from the never-ending hallways to the eclectic blend of artists, artisans, craftsmen and the creative commercial community. As the Birthplace of Art-A-Whirl, every year these forces combine to give visitors a very unique Art-A-Whirl experience.
