About the Art Crawl
The Saint Paul Art Crawl is one of the Twin Cities’ cultural highlights of the year. Its mission is to create an artist-run venue, which facilitates a mutually beneficial and meaningful interaction between the arts community and the public. The St. Paul Art Collective/Saint Paul Art Crawl will be celebrating its 30th Art Crawl this year, making it one of the longest-running events of its kind in the nation. Run by the artists themselves, it developed out of a need for the artists who live and work in the Lowertown community to reach audiences for their art. The Saint Paul Art Crawl has always been free and open to all.
