Twin cities arts community

An important part of SPCPA’s purpose is to connect the students and the school to the Twin Cities professional arts community in a number of ways.

  1. SPCPA supports students who need to miss school to perform locally with professional and youth arts organizations.
  2. Each artistic discipline offers multiple master classes taught by guest artists. Local professionals are regularly invited to perform for and dialogue with students.
  3. Arts teachers are local professional artists and they connect the students to the organizations they represent.
  4. J-Term projects happen in local professional venues.
  5. SPCPA maintains an Arts Advisory Council composed of arts leaders in the community.

Visual Art Chair, Brooks Turner, has an exhibition opening Saturday May 25th 7-10pm at Hair + Nails Gallery in Minneapolis (2222 1⁄2 E. 35th St. Minneapolis, MN 55407). His exhibition commemorates and coincides with the 90th anniversary of the 1934 Truck Drivers Strike, which was instrumental in advancing labor rights and driving fascist sympathizers out of Minnesota. The exhibition includes four tapestries, six ink drawings on handmade paper, and an installation made in collaboration with SPCPA alums Phoenix Abernathy and Colin Vatsveen. All are invited to attend the opening or stop in during gallery hours through June 30th!
