The Minnetonka Center for the Arts seeks to exhibit art and fine craft representing a wide variety of media and points of view to our members and visitors. Our exhibits celebrate the work of established artists, showcase the work of emerging artists, and offer exhibition opportunities to members and students in shows that celebrate the work done in the Center’s own studios.

Partners in Art – Call for Entries

For the past several years, Minnetonka Center for the Arts has curated and managed a program of visual art displays in the public spaces of Ridgedale Center. With the completion of Ridgedale’s renovation and the addition of a new anchor tenant in the fall of 2015, the Partners in Art program will re-appear on a larger scale, offering three times the number of opportunities to display art to the millions of visitors who pass through the mall each year. Makers of art and fine craft throughout Minnesota are invited to submit work for consideration in this program.
