Twin Cities Art {Resource}

.

Since this is my (Araya) first post here at TCDC as the 2D and 3D art editor I thought I would start out by doing a little research.  How else would you research something…Google!

I entered the phrase “Twin Cities Art” and here is what I found.

.


“TCFAO is a resource on arts and events for the community. TCFAO is a nonprofit membership-based organization that galleries, museums and art centers may join. The Twin Cities Fine Arts Organization formed to advocate visual arts literacy, which is promoted to the public through programs and visibility including the annual Gallery Guide, The Arts Insider email, special events and more.”

.

Start Seeing Art:
“Start Seeing Art is all about finding, identifying and appreciating public art in the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Too often public art is ignored or forgotten. Sometimes you can’t even find basic details like what the work is called or who created it. The goal of Start Seeing Art is to map and identify that artwork so it can be appreciated and enjoyed Your guide to public art in the Twin Cities.”

MN Artists.org:

“mnartists.org is an online database of Minnesota artists and organizations from all disciplines. It offers to Minnesota-based artists a central gathering place on the Web, and will grow to become a marketplace and community hub.

It offers the public a new way to explore art and get to know artists. In addition to providing artists and organizations with a web page containing images and information, mnartists.org provides news and features about the local arts scene from a variety of sources. mnartists.org was developed as the result of a survey of Minnesota artists conducted by The McKnight Foundation. The survey revealed the survival struggles of individual artists. The McKnight Foundation partnered with the Walker Art Center’s New Media Initiatives group to develop mnartists.org.”

.


“The Twin Cities is a cornucopia of arts and culture. There are five major art museums including the newly-remodeled Walker Art Center and the giant Minneapolis Institute of the Arts. There are seven history museums, including the Mill City Museum, built within the ruins of the original General Mills flour mill. You will find several science museums, inlcuding the Bakken Museum of Electricity in Life, founded by Earl Bakken, inventor of the cardiac pacemaker, and the Science Museum of Minnesota. In addition, there is a continuing explosion of local art and art galleries in every corner of the Twin Cities and beyond.”

.

These are just a few of the fantastic art guides and organizations the Twin Cities has to offer.

With such a rich community of Art, now is the time to get out there and start discovering for yourself.

I hope you will follow me and TCDC as we meet local artist and help promote Twin Cities art!
