Support our Work

As of now, all programs are canceled, but apprentices will be paid for their regularly scheduled hours.


JXTA is prepared to supplement safe and sick time for our youth apprentices, artists, and team during these closures. JXTA currently employs 45 youth apprentices who are paid $11.75-$12.75/hour (note: we are in the process of increasing youth wages to keep pace with the City of Minneapolis’s $15/hour minimum wage policy). Since most of our production work requires being on campus, we will see a reduction in client revenue until we are back up to full staff. Please help us raise $12,000 for two weeks of youth wages while we help our young people stay home and healthy. Your support at this time helps us ensure continual income for our staff and youth and young adult apprentices, many of whom are also helping to support their families. Thank you!


Attend events on the JXTA campus and around town that support artists through exhibitions, gallery openings, dialogues, and fundraisers.
