We could all use a little art and inspiration right now! As our next installment in our #ShopLocalMN series, we’re highlighting local artists and local art shops. From fun jewelry and ceramics to eye-catching photography and paintings, the greater metro area has no shortage of talented businesses and individuals who create inspiring art works. And while Minnesota is still abiding by social distancing, many artisans are providing curb-side pick-up or shipping options. Some of our #TunheimPicks are listed below.
