ANNUAL (PRINTED) MEMBER DIRECTORY: Features Member listings with images, the District Spotlight Gallery, and an index of members and sponsors.

The NEW Annual (PRINTED) Member Directory, available for the ENTIRE year at all SPAC events, replaces the Art Crawl Catalog as a complete Member Directory, retaining the same elegant square format with an even greater emphasis on images, detailed Member listings, the popular Member Spotlight Gallery, and advertising promotions from members and sponsors. Become a member now!

The DEADLINE for the Annual (PRINTED) Member Directory is JANUARY 31!

SPONSOR: Sponsorship allows organizations like the St Paul Art Collective to function and the Arts to thrive.

The best way to support the Collective is by becoming a Member, and beyond that there is the opportunity to both market your artwork, business, or organization while supporting the Collective.

Advertising opportunities in the Annual Member Directory include quarter page to full page ads or sponsor the District Spotlight Gallery.

Print ads and Spotlight Galleries in the Annual Member Directory are TIME SENSITIVE – deadline January 31

VIRTUAL ART CRAWL: Art Crawl is April 24-25-26, 2020 and will feature on online studio tour for 2020.

Art Crawl registration includes a complete profile in the searchable online Art Crawl directory with an interactive Google map. With a click on a Profile, you can see:

  • An interactive Google map of your studio or business location
  • A SHORT tagline description (please, less than 80 characters) to show on your thumbnail profile
  • A full description of your artwork or business (no character limits)
  • Contact information including website, phone, and email

The NEW Art Crawl Guide Map will be a larger version of the fold-out poster brochure listing all Art Crawl Artists and Locations, allowing visitors a straightforward navigation tool to find their favorite artists. Print deadline to be included on the Guide is March 10th – the printed Guide will debut with the 2021 Art Crawl

Manage your Art Crawl Profile just like you would with your full membership; log in at any time between signing up and April 30th. Art Crawl ONLY sign-up is available beginning February 1st.

ART CRAWL GUEST ARTISTS: Are you a guest artist looking for a location to show for the Art Crawl?

ANYONE can be a member of the Collective and participate in the Art Crawl – your full membership includes many benefits, including Art Crawl registration. Or if you prefer a temporary membership for Art Crawl ONLY, registration opens on February 1st.

If you need a location to show your work for the Crawl, please contact the venue and secure a location before you complete your registration. Click here for a list of potential Art Crawl venues — we try to keep this up-to-date, but sometimes things happen out of our control.

CALENDAR: The NEW Online Event Calendar allows members to add Art Events YEAR-ROUND.

The Event Calendar is public, viewable by ALL website visitors. You can link to it promotions (or payment options) at your own site, send the event link directly to your customers, and you can subscribe to Event Calendar, which gives you (and the public) reminders about upcoming happenings involving members, the community, and the Collective.

You can add Events in searchable categories:

  • Show openings, art festivals, open studios
  • Music, theatre shows, and other performances
  • Classes, demos, and workshops
  • Meetings for your group or organization

. . . and probably a lot of other things we haven’t thought of yet!

VOLUNTEER: Members drive the organization – because great things happen when you come forward to voice opinions, share your visions, and work to make it a reality.

The Board of Directors’ meetings are open to the public and Members are encouraged to attend — to ask question, provide insights, or simply observe, if you choose. The meeting dates and times, as well as agenda items are posted on the event calendar. As a member you can participate in SPAC governance, strategic planning, and program implementation.

Please consider serving as a volunteer on a planning committee or the website, doing small task work for events, or as a member of the SPAC board of directors

Virtual Saint Paul Art Crawl (click for more info)

The St Paul Art Collective has made the decision to move the Saint Paul Art Crawl scheduled for April 24-25-26, 2020 to a VIRTUAL platform. The safety and well-being of the artists and our community is our utmost concern.

More information will be on our website soon, but you can still support the artists and our community members in these very difficult times by finding them online, following and sharing their social media, and most importantly reach out and ask to buy their artwork.

VISIT THE VIRTUAL ART CRAWL

Please take care and follow the guidelines for health and safety as suggested by the CDC and MN Department of Health.

We hope to have your understanding and support as we work together during these unprecedented times.
St Paul Art Collective Board and Planning Committee
