About the Anderson Center

The Anderson Center is an artist community founded in 1995 on the Tower View estate, a venerable research-and-development lab for the arts rooted in an expansive natural setting in Red Wing, Minnesota. The organization has renovated and restored the estate’s historic buildings to support working artists and the creative process, including developing twenty-two active studio spaces and three galleries. A renovated barn serves as a performance and event venue, the historic main residence houses artists-in-residence, and fifteen acres support a sculpture garden. 

The Anderson Center’s flagship artist residency program aims to meet the needs of artists while welcoming them into a supportive and inspiring residency environment that allows them to minimize distractions, focus in on creative work, and develop a strong since of community and place while engaging in creative production. The program is one of the largest of its kind in the Upper Midwest. Since the Center was, over 800 artists from 45 states and 40 countries have participated in the program.
