Cottage Industry


Behind this door is Cottage Industry, a living installation of artists at work.

Professional artists from the Twin Cities have come together to inhabit the rooms of this house with whatever they’re working on right now, creating a co-making space for a day.

You’re invited to walk through the rooms to see what these artists are working on, and join us in thinking about all of the creative labor that’s performed every day in houses and garages all around us.  

Each artist here today is working on a project of their own creation. Feel free to ask them about what they’re working on, and also be aware that if they’re hard at work on a project they might not be able to respond right away.
