The 2019 LoLa Art Crawl takes place on Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22 from 10 a.m. – 5:00 p.m both days.

Imagine your Crawl – As big or little an adventure as you want

In the coming days we’ll show you possible paths through strange and familiar Neighborhood territory.

Stay tuned to this site’s News page, as well as accompanying Facebook page for more information.

Logistics and Eligibility

Each site with artists should be open for the duration of both days. The eligibility requirements to participate in LoLa in 2019 are as follows:
– All former LoLa Art Crawl members are eligible.
– Anyone who lives or works in the greater Longfellow neighborhood is eligible.*
– Current or former LoLa Art Crawl participants (or neighborhood residents) are welcome to invite friends or family members to participate as an artist in this year’s crawl. Please note, eligible LoLa artists will be given priority at neighborhood business sites.

* The greater Longfellow neighborhood is defined as: east of Hiawatha Avenue to the Mississippi River and south of the Greenway to Minnehaha Parkway. (Please note: Any previous LoLa artist may participate even if you no longer live or work in the neighborhood. If you were an artist in the Crawl from 2014 to 2016, at a site outside of these current boundaries, you may express your preference to locate at that site again in 2019.) If you have questions about eligibility, please contact us.

The Biggest Little Neighborhood Art Crawl in Minneapolis

The League of Longfellow Artists (LoLa) welcomes thousands of you to the LoLa Art Crawl, an annual event in the Greater Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis since 2009. At local studios, businesses and artists’ homes or yards, LoLa exhibits a huge variety of artwork featuring 110+ Artists at 56 Sites! We are delighted by this year’s registered Artists and incredibly supportive Sponsors. WE hope these two days surprise and delight you wherever you go and however you savor our Longfellow neighborhood.
