It's time for Cache ! - November 7-9, 2014
Don't miss this event! Great art, music and food.


At the heart of the Northeast Arts District is the historic city block that is Casket Arts. Casket Arts is home to over 100 artists working every day in their studios creating beautiful and inspiring works. Once a year they host their annual fall celebration, Cache at Casket Arts – inviting the community and art enthusiasts into their fascinating historic workplace to see what they do and how they do it.

So spice up a November weekend enjoying the bounty of the Casket Arts buildings in the heart of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. Local artists will show their collection of jewelry, textiles, glass, mixed media, pottery, photography, painting, sculpture and more. It's a treasure excursion worthy of date night.

Welcome to the Casket Arts Community

casketvilleThe Casket Arts Community houses three of the newest old factory buildings in Northeast Minneapolis, plus the Franconia in the City Sculpture Park. The three historic structures - the Casket Arts Building, the Carriage House and the Factory, were converted to studios in 2006. The structures are stunning - aged brick, century old wood floors, cast concrete, ancient iron and steel. All the buildings have been beautifully restored to maintain their historic character.

Over 140 artists and art-based businesses inhabit the Casket Arts Community. Most of its tenants run full-time working studios, but open their work spaces for First Thursdays every month as well as for Art-a-Whirl, Cache at the Casket and many other exhibits and showings throughout the year.
