Seward Arts & Culture

Arts & Cultural Activities in the Seward Neighborhood — Minneapolis, Minnesota


Seward is “Claytopia” this week!

“Claytopia”, The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts’ (NCECA) 53rd annual conference takes place in Minneapolis this week: March 27-30, 2019.
It has been over 20 years since Minneapolis has been selected to host the conference. NCECA draws between 5,000-6,000 artists, academics, collectors, and students from all over the world – think of it as the Super Bowl of ceramics. The conference will be held at the convention center (including free programs for the public – Winona LaDuke is the keynote speaker) with satellite shows and activities happening all over the Twin Cities.
Seward will be a hot spot of activity!
