Welcome to the Casket Arts Community

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 – home of the Northwestern Casket Company since 1882, were converted to art studios in 2006. The structures are stunning – aged brick, century old wood floors, cast concrete, ancient iron, and steel – and the buildings have been beautifully restored to maintain their historic character.

Over 150 artists and art-based businesses inhabit the Casket Arts Community. Most of its tenants run full-time working studios and normally open their work spaces for Second Saturdays every month as well as for Art-A-Whirl, Open Casket, and many other exhibits and showings throughout the year.

Casket Arts presents

OPEN CASKET 2020 – Our annual Fall Open Studio event. ONLINE ONLY

Join us for a weekend celebrating all of the beautiful work our artists and artisans create all year round. Normally we would invite you into our studios in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, but to maintain the health and safety of artists and art-lovers alike, we are holding this year’s event online only, right here at casketArts.com.

From here you will be able to shop for paintings, jewelry, ceramics, woodworking, printmaking, sculpture, drawings, photography, gifts, and more, as well as enjoy a series of live and prerecorded interviews, art demos, and interactive studio tours. Special thanks to our friends at the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association for the use of their sales platform.


Click through to Zoom live from the studios at Casket Arts, starting Friday, November 5th, at 5pm. Full schedule coming soon!

Shop directly from our talented tenants! Buy paintings, jewelry, prints, ceramics, woodworking, photography, gifts, and more!
