About the LOLA Art Crawl The League of Longfellow Artists (LoLA) began in the summer of 2009 as a small grassroots effort to raise the visibility of artists living or working in the Greater Longfellow Neighborhood of South Minneapolis. Artists Bob Schmitt, Anita White, and Shirley Neilson got together in the Longfellow community and said, “Let’s put on an art crawl!” LoLa has grown each year since 2009, when the crawl featured 42 artists at 20 sites. Ten years later, LoLa now flourishes as a nonprofit organization with the annual art crawl featuring more than a hundred neighborhood artists working in many different media
