About Us

WHO WE ARE

Juxtaposition Arts is a North Minneapolis-based, youth-focused, visual art center for developing youth and community.

OUR MISSION

Juxtaposition Arts develops community by engaging and employing young urban artists in hands-on education initiatives that create pathways to self-sufficiency while actualizing creative power.  

OUR VISION

We envision the youth of North Minneapolis entering the workforce as dynamic innovators and problem-solvers.

We believe the integrative problem-solving abilities learned through the hands-on creative process of moving from idea, to production, to market are the skills young people need to succeed in school, in work, and in life. We believe sustained participation in community-focused creative expression powerfully advances the development of individuals, communities, and places.

OUR HISTORY

For more than two decades, Juxtaposition Arts has mentored North Minneapolis youth artists with the help of industry professionals, focused on fostering creativity in the next generation of artists.

OUR FUTURE

In May 2018, JXTA launched our largest undertaking ever — a four-year, $14 million capital campaign to invest in the creative futures of youth in North Minneapolis, in our campus, and in JXTA’s legacy as a cultural institution. This will create a stronger creative and economic ecosystem for our region by nurturing community legacy and assets for future generations. 

By 2023, thousands of youth will be engaged in JXTA’s exceptional visual arts education and training programs annually, including nearly 100 youth and young adult artists and staff employed annually in training programs and social enterprise studios. In the neighborhood with the highest concentration of youth in Minnesota and the highest rate of poverty and unemployment, young people will be preparing for successful futures in the regional art and design sector.
