Fall 2015 Saint Paul Art Crawl Dates: October 9, 10 & 11

Now in it’s 24th year, the Saint Paul Art Crawl is a nationally recognized event that is firmly established on the Twin Cities’ cultural calendar. Over the years, the Art Crawl has become much more than an open–house–style, art exhibit. It now features special performances and events, a popular “play along” passport program with prizes, complimentary pedi–cab rides and spontaneous gatherings in studios and local eateries. On average, 30 venues open for the Spring Art Crawl including art cooperatives, buildings with art studios, galleries, and community businesses. With over 350 artists participating, it is one of the largest and most loved open arts events in Minnesota, and it is completely free to visitors. This past spring participating venues counted nearly 30,000 visits to their spaces.

In the spring '13 we piloted the idea of The Art Crawl Passport Program as an interactive game that allows visitors to get stamps in various buildings and venues and enter a prize drawing. For the Spring '15 Crawl, we plan to print 2500–3500 catalogues and 7000 + passports that will be inserted into the catalogues. Extra passports will also be distributed at participating venues. People can play for free and must gather stamps from a variety of areas and venues to be eligible.

The catalogues will be available at all the main buildings and venues listed on the Art Crawl map. Additionally, we will be having a sustained advertising and marketing campaign in the City Pages, MPR, as well as local newspapers. We will also be spreading the PDF of the brochure, including advertisements, on a number of websites and facebook pages. The PDF is also sent to advertisers to promote to their own customer and personal networks as well as posting on websites. We believe this activity was responsible for much of the increased traffic we experienced this past spring.
