Northrup King Building


After a bit of an absence from my blog I think it is time I get back to it.

Today I spent some time at the Northrup King building in Northeast Minneapolis. This building was built back in 1917 by the Northrup King & Co seed company.

Northrup King occupied the building until the late 1980's before selling it to private owners.

It is now the home to about 150 artists and is one of a number of older buildings that make up the Northeast Minneapolis Arts district.

A particular draw for me is the Icebox Gallery which always has a photography exhibit in progress. Howard M. Christopherson, the owner, is currently showing his images from Peru.
