Join us for The Art of We!


Upstream Arts is 10 YEARS OLD! We’re so excited to bring our community together on May 19 for The Art of We, our big 10th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser. Come enjoy a retrospective exhibit, performances, music by The New Distractions, a live auction, Fund-A-Need, and more!



“Historically, artists have played a role in bringing emotional truth to institutions. The arts have the potential to break new ground, to energize our personal connections and open new doors for invention and practice.

These are the things that Upstream Arts is bringing to [our] services.”

– Executive Director, Special Education, Minneapolis Public Schools
