In the late 1970s and early ‘80s the Lowertown district of St. Paul was a neighborhood of empty parking lots and abandoned warehouses quickly falling into disrepair. The affordability of the warehouse spaces attracted artists, and Lowertown quickly became the center of the St. Paul art scene. In 1977 a contingent of Lowertown artists founded the St. Paul Art Collective with the mission of protecting spaces for artists to create and increasing the awareness of the crucial role that artists play in the greater cultural life of the Twin Cities.

Living the Dream

In 2008, we became farmers.  Despite neither of us having a farm background, together we had been imagining our dream farm  for 25 years: It would be small, historic, eclectic, picturesque... a place to celebrate art, music and community.
Amazingly - our dream is happening!  

We are actually farmers!
