Through monthly film nights, affordable arts classes for children and gallery events (displaying the art of the students and local working artists) Aldrich Arts Collaborative hopes to bring artists and our diverse communities together to nurture young artists, honor artistic excellence, explore the human experience and its mysteries, and celebrate the diversity of South Minneapolis.
Aldrich Arts Collaborative is a collaboration between local artists, Aldrich Church, local contributing businesses, and neighborhood students, and patrons. We believe the arts open us to a deeper understanding of God, our society, and ourselves. Because of this, we embrace the arts as an essential public good—critical to a healthy society and healthy faith communities, invaluable for personal enrichment and growth, and a door to creating a more just, compassionate, and beautiful world.
ALDRICH ARTS CLASSES
Affordable arts classes for youth, taught by professional working artists are offered on a quarterly basis. Student work is then displayed at the Aldrich Gallery, alongside the work of local artists.

ALDRICH ARTS GALLERIES
Held at The Meeting Place Gallery of Aldrich Church (3501 Aldrich Ave S, Minneapolis), the Gallery showcases work of local artists alongside students of Aldrich Arts Collaborative classes. Professional work is for sale.
Gallery Openings are held biannually. Gallery hours are 10-3:30pm, or by appointment (612-825-2479).
Aldrich Arts Collaborative, in partnership with Aldrich Church also hosts monthly FILM NIGHTS, showcasing top films and directors from around the world. FILM NIGHTS are free, and followed by informal discussion.
Drawing from IMAGE Journal’s Arts & Faith Top 100 Films list, which spans cinematic history from silent movies (F.W. Murnau’s Sunrise, 1927) to films currently in theaters (the Coen Brothers’ Oscar nominated A Serious Man), the list consists of films characterized both by artistic excellence and a serious wrestling with questions that at root might be called religious or spiritual.
