Schmidt Artist Lofts

Art installation
Brad Menninga
In addition to his finely detailed ceramic sculptures, textured bowls, and neo-classical pottery, St. Paul artist Brad Menninga has converted his living room into an 18th century Dutch period room, and participated in the virtual Saint Paul Art Crawl (see “News” for a link to the crawl). The art and artifacts on display raise questions about the legacies passed down to us from our ancestors. Brad Menninga is a fiscal year 2020 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
