Fox Den Dates
Solar Arts  711 15th Ave NE 2nd Floor

We’re excited to have the Fox Den on the second floor of the Solar Arts Building to use for ACW solo or small group exhibitions for special events at the building this coming year. Applications will be evaluated by a team of 5 jurors. Applications are welcomed, and artists notified on a continual basis throughout the year. ACW will actively promote the use exhibition for the public scheduled event. In addition, should the artist choose, ACW will support and promote a special private showing in the space over the weekend lasting up to four hours.711 15th Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413.  Second floor.

Must be an ACTIVE ACW member to apply.  ACTIVE members have paid their ACW membership dues and contributed time, talent or treasure to the collective.  ACW will only survive if  we all work together.  We would like to continue to offer our events free, pay small stipends to our leaders and  give all sales proceeds to our artists.
