Art In The Hollow (St Paul, MN) – Call For Artists

The Friends of Swede Hollow are seeking artists for a community/family annual arts festival, Art In The Hollow, that fills an urban ravine-based park with art at the beginning of the summer. Art in the Hollow began as a means to introduce St. Paulites to Swede Hollow Park, a magical hidden forest that stretches below the city’s street level from downtown into its East Side.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 25 May 2019

There is a $15 booth fee and no application costs.

Art in the Hollow is the only arts festival exclusive to St. Paul’s east Side, filling a cultural vacuum in an area of town which is otherwise overflowing with cultural enrichment from waves of immigration from Latin America, SouthEast Asia, Eastern Europe, and the horn of Africa. The park has a long history of habitation by Dakota people and incoming immigrants from Sweden to Mexico, reflected outward now in the surrounding East Side communities. Today, Swede Hollow park is a refuge for artists on the first Saturday of each June.

Vendor booths are situated along a pathway which wraps around the main stage on one end of the festival and along a pathway overlooking a creek to the far end of the festival where a second stage is situated under a historic stone bridge. A limited rain site space is available for some artists in the event of very severe weather. In addition to the vendor booths, the Friends of Swede Hollow sponsor a sculpture contest with a $15 entry and hundreds awarded in prizes.

Art In The Hollow Artist Benefits

Artists involved will find assistance from a team of volunteers. The East Side artist’s community is supportive and eager to help connect artists to further opportunities. Art in the Hollow has generally drawn crowds of nearly two thousand visitors in good weather. There are nearly 1000 social media followers. This year’s tenth anniversary will feature an expanded outreach to all the surrounding communities with increased lawn sign presence and flyers translated into Spanish, Hmong, and Karen. The Friends of Swede Hollow partner with nearby art organizations including Indiginous Roots Cultural Center, East Side Artist’s Salon, East Side Arts Council, and the St. Paul Library system.

About the Friends of Swede Hollow

Friends of Swede Hollow has watched over the Swede Hollow Park and its history for years. It brings art and events down into the Hollow to support and enliven the community. They are focused on grassroots arts community building rather than being an outgrowth of a large organization or corporate entity.
