Art Survey Aims to Improve Duluth’s Lincoln Park Neighborhood

Improving a Duluth Neighborhood Through Art

For the past several years a major push has been in motion to try and rejuvenate a well-known Duluth neighborhood.

Now members of a group called Advancing Lincoln Park are recognizing a growing trend of artists seeking to locate in this historic neighborhood because they are running in to space issues elsewhere.

That has the Duluth Art Institute stepping in to help find solutions.

“The artists in our community have really raised the level of Duluth and we are trying to figure out how to best support that and best support the artists who are really working to tell Duluth’s story,” said Director of the Duluth Art Institute, Anne Dugan.

Studio space is a large issue in the arts community.

Members of Advancing Lincoln Park have ideas for re-energizing the neighborhood and believe creating more artistic space here is vital to accomplishing their goal.

“The Advancing Lincoln Park group has been really receptive to the fact that artists can be incredible change makers for the community and they are trying to move forward in a conscientious manner of recognizing that and celebrating that and being respectful of that as well,” added Dugan.

Advancing Lincoln Park is aiming to get as many responses as possible to the 10 question online survey by June 10th.

If you would like to participate we have a link to the survey available here.

The findings of the surveys will be used to connect with artists locally and those with interest of moving to the Northland which will hopefully encourage art-based developments in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
