The St. Paul Art Collective supports artists through
diverse and engaging artistic experiences.

Recognizing that art is essential for a healthy and vibrant community, the St. Paul Art Collective runs and supports projects, initiatives, and events that increase the awareness of artists, their work, and their cultural contributions. The Saint Paul Art Crawl has been the Collective’s cornerstone event since 1991.


Art is for everybody. 

Art connects and heals, lifts us up and inspires us to see the beauty in every day. Let us bring that inspiration to you! The 2020 Collector Edition Directory showcases our member artist’s artwork as well as the community, gallery owners, and businesses who support the St. Paul Art Collective.

Come be a part of planning the future of the Collective!
