Plan Your Visit to
The 2019 LoLa Fine Arts Exhibition
Building on last year’s successful two-day event, and because of the generous support of our Sponsors, we are happy to announce our friends at Squirrel Haus Arts and The League of Longfellow Artists will host a four-day event this year.
Almost 50 LoLa Artists will show about 100 pieces of their work. Be sure to visit the 2019 LoLa FAE Facebook page for views into the diverse mediums and wide-ranging styles.
Come to see the art, stay to make a fun little item to take home during drop-in artist activities for all ages, at the second LoLa Winter Fine Art Exhibition at Squirrel Haus Arts, 3450 Snelling Ave. S., Longfellow, Minneapolis. Admission is free and open to the public; a small donation is optional for make-and-take activities.
Art pick up: Feb. 24 5-6pm
NEW THIS YEAR
More opportunities to visit, and more reasons to drop in and see what’s happening.
- Open for two weekends instead of one, with the opening reception at the close of the first day.
- For art lovers with small budgets: Some of the artists will also have small items for sale during their volunteer gallery shift, such as note cards featuring their artwork. This will be continuously changing.
- Artist educators will lead informal make-and-take activities for children and adults (very small children will need an adult helper), for a small optional donation of up to $5 to cover the cost of materials. These will occur at various times during gallery hours.
HERE ARE A FEW ARTIST ACTIVITIES SCHEDULED SO FAR
- Saturday, Feb. 16, noon–2: Make a cardboard mask with Pete Talbot, and play a cardboard pinball machine.

- Sunday, Feb. 17, noon–2: Make a mini alphabet book to write and sketch in, with Meg Erke.

The Biggest Little Neighborhood Art Crawl in Minneapolis
The League of Longfellow Artists (LoLa) welcomed 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 exhibited a huge variety of artwork featuring 100+ Artists at 60 Sites! We are delighted with the way the two days unfolded and hope you plan to return in 2018.
A LoLa Artist is someone that has participated in a LoLa Art Crawl OR lives or works in the greater Longfellow neighborhood. Artists are encouraged to attend the reception, and are welcome at the gallery hours, but this is not required.
