smARTpass is a brand new arts access program open exclusively to Twin Cities metro public library users. As a pilot program, smARTpass is a smaller-scale, six-month test to see how a larger-scale program might work in practice. If you have a library card from any of the eight public library systems in the Twin Cities 7-county metro (Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington counties, and the city of Saint Paul), you have the opportunity to reserve free and/or discounted admission to a wide range of arts experiences.

The cultural organizations partnering with the metro public libraries have generously agreed to offer a substantial number of free admissions – and they are NOT reimbursed for these!

Exemplary offers include:

  • The Bell Museum of Natural History
  • Illusion Theatre
  • Minneapolis Institute of Arts
  • Park Square Theatre
  • The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra
  • The Ordway
  • & More!
