We’re open! And you’re invited! The newly renovated Springboard for the Arts in Saint Paul is open, with a large Community Hall and front yard ready for community to share, create connections, and spread joy. We also encourage uses of our spaces as a platform for supporting the visibility and economic opportunity of artists and the neighboring communities. We are excited to host – and see you host – events, workshops, and gatherings at our friendly and colorful new home on University Avenue.
John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Community Hall
It's the perfect blank canvas for: gallery and film showcases, live performances (Vocalists, Bands, choirs, Dancers, Poets) artist markets, workshops & meetings, rehearsals, video shoots; whatever you can dream!
Our Front Yard is our entire outside area. Artist markets, food trucks, movies, mini ice rinks, live performances, mural making, bouncy houses for kids, and hula hoop art, are just a few fabulous things that have taken place during events here so far!
Ecolab Skyline Terrance
Our rooftop is a gem in the city with an almost 360-degree view of the surrounding area. This space is ideal for small celebrations, dancing, and special moments.
