Artist Showcase

Artist Showcase is a community art exhibit celebrating artists in St. Louis Park and Golden Valley. The exhibition builds connections between local artists and our communities, and the organizers encourage all artists and creatives who live, work or learn in Golden Valley or St. Louis Park or to submit their work.  


Artist Showcase 21 includes work from 60 artists, with online gallery experiences  with musicians, filmmakers, dancers and poets, plus new ways to engage with our local artists.  Submissions may be work in 2D, 3D, and recorded work (video). ​

Hybrid in-person and online galleries run from January-June 2021 across Robbin Gallery and Westwood Hills Nature Center.

GVCF Impact Report

Our Golden Valley Community Foundation is reflecting back on the impact our donors make in this wonderful community. Since 2011, our donors have given more than $420,000 back to the community through grants, programs and other donations. The GVCF Impact Report highlights just a fraction of that impact.
