Community Events and Programs
Artist in Residence (AiR) Program
The Artist in Residence (AiR) is a drop-in and workshop series that is artist & community centered exploring creativity, relationships and connection in Minneapolis parks. Every summer, we are honored and proud to collaborate with such talented local lead artists, offering opportunities across the five park service areas of Minneapolis. May we create art in the name of healing, radical love and justice. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come make art with us! Mobile Mia provides free summertime art activities for all ages in the Minneapolis parks via bicycle.
Lake Harriet Kite Festival, 2018
Mia artists joined the fun on the frozen lake.
The Crossover: Basketball + Art, 2017
Students explored the basic elements of art by creating a painting using a basketball backboard as a canvas. This 5-day class was inspired by artworks in the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s collection and was taught by Twin Cities aerosol art pioneer Peyton Scott Russell.
Presented in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.
Water is Life posters, 2017
We honored the importance of water in our lives with the help of Spirit Lake Dakota artist Marlena Myles. Student artists created posters using stencils, drawing inspiration from artworks found at Mia and from water itself.
