Art Erickson

Art is Co-Founder of STUDIOne-Eighty and founder of Urban Ventures, a community and family development center in the heart of South Minneapolis. Art has been meeting with communities, cities, states and representatives from other countries who are interested in not only understanding the Urban Ventures story, but how to achieve a successful urban transformation of their own.  Art and his team listen to the challenges facing these communities – the roadblocks that are preventing progress. Knowing that each group comes with their own unique situation, they are able to offer hindsights, insights, and foresights based on their own experience with local government, corporate, education, and collaborative organizations – as collectively the group works toward a transformation blueprint.
