The City Assists Wealth Building Opportunity for Local Artists

The Flux Arts Building is opening with the support of the City of Minneapolis. A year ago the City sold the property located on Lowry Ave NE to four Northeast artists. The City had purchased the property from Hennepin County from the tax forfeit property list and selected the artist group through a Request for Proposals process. The artists from Clay Squared to Infinity and Potek Glass collaborated with the California Building Company team to renovate the building into artists’ studios, showroom and office space. The City also provided financing to the project from its 2% Loan program.

The project reactivates a long vacant commercial space near Central Ave, adds studio space along the northern edge of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District and creates a wealth building opportunity for local artists to own and occupy their studios. The building’s grand opening is Friday, February 15, from 4:00 – 9:00 p.m..
