Art Strong In Lowertown!
INSIDE OUT Lowertown is a celebration of the symbiotic relationship between artists and the spaces where they live, create and share their work.
The Lowertown neighborhood of downtown St. Paul is a storied arts district that boasts the highest concentration of designated artist live/work art studios in the United States. Decades of initiatives by artists, art advocates and civic leaders have made this possible. However, despite Lowertown’s history and reputation, there is a surprising lack of visual indication that hundreds of artists call Lowertown home. Though it’s only a temporary measure, the INSIDE OUT Lowertown exhibit will help address this problem.
The Goal of our project is to reveal both the scope and the diversity of the creative community that has earned Lowertown its reputation as one of the strongest arts districts in the US. More importantly, our project bears witness to the fact that an arts district is something more than a place. It is a cultural incubator where a community of culture-makers live, work, instigate, communicate and create.
