We will be closed July 4-8 Details

Both our offices in Lowertown Saint Paul and Fergus Falls house Resource Centers, offering individual artists and small organizations access to a full array of equipment, tools, and services in an informal, self-directed environment. Stop by during drop-in hours or make an appointment to scan some slides, research travel grants, learn to use Drupal, read up on resumes, or print some flyers.
