Juxtaposition Arts is a teen-staffed art and design center,
gallery, retail shop, and artists’ studio space in North
Minneapolis. 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. In the Fall of 2020 I was
hired as a teaching artists and Lead lab assistant in the
Graphic Design lab.
JXTA’s Graphic Design Lab creates unique and vibrant designs
for a variety of digital, print, and screen print applications.
Whether you need a new or redesigned logo, custom swag,

creative solutions for any design project.
STUDIO #285 (P.F Studios)
The goal of the expanded PF Studios spaces like #285 is to advocate for historically excluded artists’ presence and work in the Northrup King Building, as well as honor the impact of having a supportive studio community to build within. Artists in #285 are emerging artists, but with a few more years of experience as practicing artists. Unlike Studio 400 (which is structured to assist artists in the earliest stages of their practice), #285 are independent spaces within a collaborative environment. In November 2020 I after graduating out the studio #400 I was fortunate enough to move my practice into studio #285.
Studio 400 artists that have completed at least 1 year have priority access to PF Studios. Additional PF Studios spaces are filled through rolling open call as spaces become available. Artists sign a one-year lease and can renew as long as it makes sense for their practice.

creative practice and workspace. Within this space, the artists have
autonomy to build community, dedicate to practice
with each other. The space is curated and managed by the artists.
Studio 400 is multi-disciplinary, an open interpretation of art andartists.
The program includes painters, graphic designers, fashion designers
and more. Artists who are self-taught and artists who are traditionally
educated are equally valued. Studio 400 prioritizes pace for artists of
color and historically underserved artists.
In early 2019 Studio #400 leaders opened the first call for artists
through a submission process, I was fortunate enought to be apart
of the first inagural cohort of artist.
