Altered Esthetics is a nonprofit community organization run by a volunteer-driven board who donate their time to create workshops, exhibitions, and events for emerging artists. We are committed to providing affordable access to the arts for both patrons and artists. Donations allow us to offer programs and opportunities which support local emerging artists. 

Since our founding in 2004, Altered Esthetics has hosted over 144 group exhibitions, launched a Solo Exhibitions Program for emerging artists, and has exhibited the work of more than 700 artists - many of whom are sharing their artwork with the public for the very first time.

You can help us continue to provide access and opportunities to Twin Cities artists. Please consider making a tax deductible gift at:

Thank you for your continued support, whether it be through donating, attending our events, or submitting to our calls for art.
