A huge thank you to Thrivent Financial for organizing Art at the Heart, an event at Surly Brewing Company benefitting Upstream Arts. Supporters gathered for drinks and hors d’oeuvres, a pop-up performance and program from Upstream Arts, an exhibit of paintings by Upstream Arts participants, and family-friendly activities. In addition to financial contributions raised during the event, attendees created arrangements out of necessary art supplies which were then donated for our programming. We’re delighted to be in partnership with Thrivent Financial, and we’re honored by the support of everyone who attended.

You can contribute to our growth and continued impact: make a tax-deductible gift online or mail a check to Upstream Arts, 3501 Chicago Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55407.

Thank you for all of your support!
