FLOW Northside Arts Crawl 2020
FLOW Northside Arts Crawl is a 3-day celebration of the arts in North Minneapolis, July 30–August 1, 2020.
Since 2006, FLOW has become both a community celebration and the premier art event in North Minneapolis. FLOW is a non-juried, self guided tour of studios, galleries, theaters, commercial and vacant spaces over a mile and a half of the West Broadway corridor. From b-boys to ballet, graffiti to graphite, rap to rhapsody, fine artist to arts, practicing to professional, FLOW showcases the great art being made every day on the Northside. FLOW is a program of the West Broadway Coalition that showcases over Northside artists of all ages and experiences at various locations around the community with an exciting weekend of indoor and outdoor activities.
FLOW 2020 marks our 15th celebration in North Minneapolis!

Juxtaposition Arts and ROHO Collective will each host physical events, though with limited attendance and social distancing. Juxtaposition Art’s plaza will again be activated with a live set by DJ Mickey Breeze, and the gallery will be open to 4 visitors at a time. VividBlackPaint will present a Pop-Up Circus in Juxtaposition Arts’ Pocket Park. Across the street, ROHO Collective will host a pop-up in McDonald’s parking lot, featuring community art murals, live music and spoken word, kid’s art therapy tent, and more.
“8:46” work in progress by Minneapolis Fair Students 1:00p: “8:46” is a series of short vignettes exploring some of the issues brought to the forefront by the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police. The pieces are sometimes personal, imaginative, dramatic, comedic, but always expressive of our truth. They strive to capture where we as a collective are at this moment. Black Lives Matter.
Masks and social distancing required at all physical pop-ups.
