Would you like millions of people to see your artwork?
Since 2009, the Minnetonka Center for the Arts has curated and managed Partners in Art, a program of
visual art exhibits in the public spaces of Ridgedale Center, seen by millions of visitors each year. With
Ridgedale's recent renovation and expansion, the Partners in Art exhibit program has more than tripled
in scale, substantially increasing opportunities for regional artists to display and sell their artwork.
Partners in Art– Call for Entries
For the past several years, Minnetonka Center for the Arts has curated and managed a program

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. Media shown includes but
is not limited to sculpture, ceramics, textiles, painting, glass and photography. Download the Call
