Art of Edina is an initiative aimed at giving rising + established Edina artists a public space to display their art.
How it works:
- We work with local Edina businesses to use a portion of their wall space in high traffic areas for our galleries.
- We curate, print and install the art galleries. We use a museum-grade printer and an installer trained in working with fine art.
- Some of our gallery art sources include: Edina Art Center, upper level photography and art courses at Edina High School, the Edina Community Center, clubs, churches, local professionals and hobbyists.
- We also scour the hashtag #ArtofEdina on Instagram looking for new talent to feature.
- Artists are required to sign a release form allowing us to use their art for the gallery
- Hand-created art such as paintings, drawings, etc. will be reproduced (scanned and printed) for our galleries. We do not display the originals.
- All art is displayed for 3 months. At the end of that time period, the art is then given to the artist.
- Every 3 months a new collection of art will be installed
- All selected Artists will receive a Live Love MN/Art of Edina collaborative tote bag, goodies and an invite to the gallery launch party.
- During the time of the display, several artists will also be recognized through our media partner channels.
