We proudly showcase the work of local artists whose work relates to playful design. We tie in our drop-in activities to reflect the artist’s methods, shapes and materials to inspire our Minni Artists and give them a taste of the working artist process.



Current Exhibition


Low + Slow


Illustrations by Raúl the Third

March 1–May 27

“Low + Slow” features original illustrations from the popular Lowriders comic book series and the much anticipated ¡Vamos! Let's Go to the Market! by award-winning author and illustrator Raúl The Third. Created with simple Bic ballpoint pens, Raúl’s vibrant and playful illustrations celebrate childhood literature and the Latino cultural experience. We are thrilled that this exhibition coincides with the release of Raúl’s first authorial project, ¡Vamos! Let's Go to the Market!, a bilingual comic book chronicling the bustling market life of a border town.

Join us for the opening on SoWa First Friday, March 1, 5–8pm.




Past Exhibitions


A Winter for a Fox, or Two

Denise Gunter

In a colorful collaboration with the renowned Japanese brand MT Washi Tape, Minni commissioned an installation inspired by wintery hues and woodlands designed by local artist and teacher Denise Gunter. Her intention was to create a piece that focused on the relationship between line and geometrical shapes; in particular the reaction that takes place when they intersect.



Continuous Gradation

Ryan and Kimberly Habbyshaw

“Continuous Gradation” features work by designer duo Ryan and Kimberly Habbyshaw of Loyal Union in Somerville, MA. Bold circle prints form a continuous gradation across a backdrop of pristine white walls, illustrating the scalability of art + design. Prints can be displayed alone or expanded infinitely as a series - Imagination is your only limitation! 



Larger + Smallish

Suzy Pilgrim Waters

“Larger + Smallish” presents bold shapes and, in Susy’s own words, “adventures in paint.” Susy is inspired by the boldness of nature and the contrasting elements of urban architecture, both of which she re-interprets with abstract forms and diverse hues.
