(Minneapolis, Minnesota) August 27, 2018 - Bring the kids. Bring your bicycle. Bring the dog. The League of Longfellow Artists (LOLA) have a full weekend of fun planned during the annual art crawl.
For the tenth year, participants are invited to visit with and take home art from any of the 130 plus artists displaying their works at 60 plus sites throughout the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis. The self-guided tour is free and allows visitors to enjoy and shop for locally created fine art and crafts at their own pace. A wide variety of styles and mediums are presented each year, including printmaking, jewelry, fiber, photography, glass, painting, clay, sculpture, woodworking, and mixed media.
The search for one-of-a-kind art, throughout a neighborhood by the river known for classic bungalows and natural beauty, may activate the need for a cold beverage or a bite to eat. Great coffee shops, bars, and restaurants all over Longfellow, await.
New this year, Solid State Vinyl and their record store bus the Rockin’ Roller, will host several artists and spin records throughout the weekend.

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.
