Our Goals

Art Works Eagan plans to offer artist studios, fine art gallery, artisan shop, small performance space, and a makers' workshop.  AWE will serve as a centralized hub for artists, the community, and existing arts organizations in Eagan to connect and collaborate with each other.

 

We believe

Community is built piece by piece, layer by layer, and side by side on the common canvas that is Eagan.

 

History

The founding Board of Directors met in an artist group called Eagan Artist Connect.  We gathered to support one another, share creative inspiration, develop professionally, and learn.  We founded Art Works Eagan in order to provide the community with missing aspects within Eagan: space for artists to create, venues for artists to display work, space for performing arts, opportunities for collaboration among artists of all media and performance backgrounds, and a venue for the community to interact with artists and support creativity locally.

Art Works Eagan was formed in January of 2016 and is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.  In the first year, we officially incorporated as a non-profit business, established a Board of Directors, completed legal and organizational documents for financial planning and 501(c)3 status, and designed programming for the coming years. We are very proud of our work, and eternally grateful for the volunteerism of so many who have been with us every step of the journey.
