St Paul Art Crawl




Twice a year, in spring and in fall, approximately 20-30 downtown studios and lofts open their doors over a three day week-end. A trolley wends its way from block to block and building to building. Street vendors supply food that supplements the goodies many artists offer to those who stop to see their work, and many musicians entertain in the halls or studios. Spending a few hours looking at photographs, fine arts of many genres, and artistic clothing is a visual feast.

  7. That looks like a wonderful walk through art. Sure as Christmas, I'd buy something.

    I didn't get to Door County this year, only as far as Green Bay, but there is another trip to Wisconsin planned for January. I wonder if the weather would allow me to travel further north then?

    The new header photo is a reflection of the Clinton Presidential Library. Strange to see it blurry in the glass like that, huh?

  11. Lots of art in the cities surrounding Delta, but not much in town. I came across a man from our church yesterday who did rather unique wood carvings, and was encouraging him to get back into it full time. He was injured in a construction accident, and was looking to go to a desk job, but I could tell it was carving that he loved. Hopefully he will restart, and I can feature him at DDP!

    Did you buy anything? I like the glass trays/coasters in the third photo.
