Midway Contemporary Art

Minneapolis, MN

Founded by artists in 2001, Midway Contemporary Art is a nonprofit, non-collecting visual arts organization in Minneapolis that presents temporary exhibitions, maintains a public research library and presents regular public programs.

Our exhibitions primarily focus on commissioning and developing new projects with artists who have typically never shown in the Midwest or, often, in the United States.

The Midway Contemporary Art Library serves to document, present, and preserve the recent history of contemporary visual art in a public context. Founded in 2007, its objectives are to research, collate, and catalog published material in an effort to provide the most comprehensive and accessible resource for research into contemporary art in the region.

Midway’s exhibitions, library and programming are all free and open to the public.

In 2016 Midway established the Visual Arts Fund, a grant program awarding $5,000 and $10,000 grants to artist organized projects in the Twin Cities with generous support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
