Become a member and help make these wild projects a reality! Light Grey Art Lab originated with an idea of connecting people, making it easy to collaborate, and share ideas. We often present the final product to the public, but behind the scenes, we are testing new materials such as vinyl, printing on skateboards, learning how to code videogames for Dream Arcade or Great Personality, researching medieval knights and esoteric topics, and spending a huge amount of time making unique creative endeavors come to live. Be a part of the community and help make things happen!


Light Grey Art Lab is a gallery, classroom, and art events space in Minneapolis, Minnesota, that focuses on bringing all types of artists and designers together to exhibit, participate, learn and share experiences. We believe that art culture should be accessible to everyone and that it should be easy for creatives to celebrate their practice.

Our mission at Light Grey Art Lab is to help foster a global creative community. Since we've got a lot of things going on, there are many ways to be involved! We host exhibitions, collaborative online projects, art events, local workshops, traveling residencies, and all types of ways to collaborate with other creatives.

Right now, this Patreon is a way for our community to support the gallery directly. Many of the shows and events are available to the public for free or for a reduced cost, and we appreciate anyone who is able to contribute to the continuation of these projects!
In the future, we're hoping to offer exclusive and early access content, resources, and oppourtunities. Stay tuned as this page continues to grow.

Here is where you can find information about current and past exhibitions, calls for art, events, travel programs, and workshops.
