spearwave 6

Our monthly exhibition Spearwave has been self-funded since last year with the help of communities that offered us their space to showcase our work and Safari Express providing refreshments for each exhibition.


We are happy to announce that Spearwave for the year 2017/2018 will be funded through CURA’s Artists Neighborhood Partnership Initiative (ANPI). This grant program is particularly focused on directly funding individual artists or groups of artists who are working to build a more equitable Twin Cities.


This grant will allow us to mentor and compensate emerging artists to partake in Spearwave for 5 installments for the year 2017/2018 in Cedar–Riverside neighborhood.


Spearwave is a monthly intimate exhibition and gathering space for conversations about art and culture. We hope this gesture will foster interconnectedness, and, using spearwave as a foil, allow these artists a fresh opportunity to experiment with new ways of bringing to you the fruits of their artistic conceptions.


Soomaal House of Art is a Minnesota-based Somali art collective that provides studio space, studio critiques, artistic community, mentorship for emerging Somali artists and a final exhibition space with educational programs.
