Seward Arts & Culture

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


Seward Artist CB Sherlock

CB Sherlock combines her love of nature, wordplay and unique book structures. She creates work that reflects the world around her, capturing the brilliant or the harsh moments of nature, visually layering her art with text and image. She creates art on the press, intuitively adding color, shape, and words. It is a recipe: add language, nature imagery and the expressive book structure, each time bringing the components together in new arrangements.

Stop by to meet, discover, and purchase her work at her studio, Tin Top Studios, 2521 27th Ave. S., during the Seward Winter Frolic on Saturday, Dec. 7, 10am – 5pm and Sunday Dec. 8, 12 – 5pm.



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!
