Experience The Art 2014

Invitation Graphic

An Artful Event!

Art Force’s Experience the Art 2014 was an amazing and artistically cool event on April 24, 2014! Guests experienced art in all its forms including featured fine art displayed throughout the space, artful food, smARTinis, an aerial performer, and new trends in the world of art (interactive projection art as well as Art Force’s SmartArt Rotating Art Program and SmartArt Asset Management Program). The suspended buffet (using cabling and acrylic from Art Force) and “Pop Art” popcorn bar were part of the fun.

Thank you to everyone who attended! If you couldn’t make it to this extraordinary event – we missed you and hope to see you next year! See a few of the highlights featured below and vendors who made this such a special event.

The Food

Common Roots Catering


Minnesota is our home, and our inspiration. Our catering company was founded with the same values as our restaurant: to create food with local character that is worthy of your celebrations and special events.

We are proud to support local and sustainable farmers. Our short growing season means that every sprig of dill, every pea shoot and pepper and tomato, every cherry and apple is a cause for celebration. All year long, we work with local farmers raising animals for meat and dairy in a sustainable way, and growing grain organically. We believe in letting the ingredients speak for themselves.

We are proud to support the local economy. Not only do the dollars for about 50% of our food purchases go to local producers, we use local vendors whenever possible and employ over 60 full-time staff members. We are proud to operate in an environmentally responsible way. All our food waste is composted by Eureka Recycling – since opening, we’ve diverted hundreds of thousands of pounds of waste from landfills. We provide compostable or reusable service ware for all events.
