The Art Crowd

PARTICIPATE in the creation, publication, and distribution of wholly new and original Minnesota art books by leading Minnesota art historians—exceptionally beautiful volumes that meet high standards of scholarship, literary value, design, and production; books that illuminate and preserve our Minnesota art history for present-day and future generations of collectors, scholars and students, general readers, and aspiring artists!

ART CROWD members are recognized on the copyright page of each new ART CROWD book and receive a complimentary copy, signed by the author(s).

ART CROWD members are invited to Minnesota art-related programs sponsored by Afton Press throughout the year.
