Second Shift Studio Space of Saint Paul

United States
St. Paul

Second Shift Studio Space of Saint Paul is a nonprofit residency program, art space, and artist-led effort to provide better resources to working artists and build communities of arts appreciators.
Specifically, Second Shift works to serve women, gender-nonconforming individuals, and others who are marginalized as a result of their gender identity through our year-long studio residency program.

Second Shift is the vision of East Side residents Chris Larson and Kriss Zulkosky, who founded the space after noticing many artists in the Twin Cities being priced out of affordable studio space. They purchased an old linoleum shop on Payne Avenue in October of 2017, and have been working since, to transform it into a functional studio space storefront.
