The Casket Arts Community is comprised of three beautifully renovated old factory buildings in Northeast Minneapolis, plus the NE Sculpture Gallery and outdoor sculpture park. The three historic structures – the Casket Arts Building, the Carriage House, and the Factory – had been the Northwestern Casket Company from 1882 until converted to art studios in 2006.  Over 150 artists and art-based businesses inhabit the Casket Arts Community. Most of the tenants run full-time working studios and open their work spaces for building events and by appointment.
