The Minneapolis Arts Festival is organized by the Minneapolis Art Council and is co-presented with Minneapolis’ Parks and Recreation, Riverview Partnership and American Indian Museum. The collaboration between public agencies and private organizations dates back to the 1970s when early partnerships were formed to create a wide range of arts activities at places like Minneapolis’ Open Space Center and Riverview Arts and Conference Center. The festival is an ideal way to get outdoors and enjoy the great works of art.
The Minneapolis Art Council is committed to fostering diversity in all aspects of art including development of arts policy, planning and practice in the public realm. This is evidenced in the scope of projects the Art Council supports including the Festival, the Citywide Arts Festival, the Day of the Dead Festival, ArtsWalk, the Merriam Park Living Sculpture Project and the 12th St. Community Music Project among others.
