Who’s exhibiting and opportunities for artists

Northern Spark 2015 has an open call for projects, and artists from anywhere are eligible to apply. Submission form for proposals will open by December 2. 

Deadline: January 12, 2015

Northern Spark is an all-night arts festival that lights up Minneapolis on June 13, 2015. On the second Saturday in June, tens of thousands of people gather along the Minneapolis riverfront and throughout the city to explore giant video projections, play in temporary installations in the streets, and enjoy experimental performances in green spaces. From dusk to dawn the city surprises you: friendly crowds, glowing groups of cyclists, an unexpected path through the urban landscape, the magic of sunrise after a night of amazing art and experiences. Northern Spark is the one-night arts event people talk about for the rest of the year.
