We offer a range of merch from mugs to t-shirts. So you can literally wear your pride on your sleeve!

Items can be dropped at the office as they are ordered. A portion of all sales will be given right back to the Minot Area Council of the Arts.

Get Involved

The Minot Area Council of the Arts is made possible thanks to community engagement. We seek not only artists, but clubs, groups, individuals, organizations, volunteers, organizers, and visionaries to help us cultivate the talents in our region.

The Minot Area Council of the Arts is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
