Members make SooVAC possible.

For over two decades, SooVAC has been a mainstay in the Twin Cities cultural community, exhibiting and supporting the work and careers of emerging, under-represented artists through exhibitions, internships, employment, curatorial work, partnerships, community programming, workshops, and letting artists lead in every endeavor. 

Since our founding by artist Suzy Greenberg in 2001, our small organization has connected the community to over 3600 artists and created innovative year round programming, celebrating the rich diversity of our artistic community.

With your generous support, we can sustain this mission and continue to introduce fresh, provocative and boundary pushing work from local and out of state artists alike. Below you will find information about our different levels of membership.
