We will be closed July 4-8 Details

You're invited to celebrate the opening of Springboard for the Arts' new space in St. Paul! This project has been four years in the making, reimagining a vacant used car lot into a vibrant, artist-created community hub – and we're so excited to share it with you. Join in to experience public art installations, the community hall, outdoor green space and rain garden, and artist-led activities!

This opening celebration will have two components – tune in on Friday, October 1, 3-4pm Central, for a virtual celebration, or join us in person at 262 University Avenue West in St. Paul for a celebration on Saturday, October 2, 1-5pm. We want to take this opportunity to celebrate the work of the staff, board and artists who have gotten us to this point, thank our supporters and donors who have made this possible, and invite neighbors, friends, and community members to celebrate with us however they are able.
