Who is LoLa? The League of Longfellow Artists (LoLa) is a group of artists and arts supporters dedicated to bringing to light the treasures of artistic expression created by artists living or working in the greater Longfellow neighborhood of south Minneapolis.  Having begun in the summer of 2009 as a small grassroots effort, LOLA now flourishes as an artist-run annual art crawl featuring mediums of all kinds.
