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.
