Robbin Gallery is a local nonprofit artists' cooperative with a mission to bring art to the community while helping artists grow and learn to develop their skills and creativity.
At home in the historic Robbinsdale library building, Robbin Gallery hosts eleven exhibits each year including two member shows and the "Extremely Minnesota" statewide juried exhibition. Eight monthly "Special Exhibits" are available each year to individual artists or groups of artists.
The building is owned by the city of Robbinsdale and operated by Hennepin Artists of Robbin Gallery. Members volunteer their time to staff the gallery and support the arts through member meetings, workshops and exhibits.
All visual arts are represented.

In January, 2008, the members of the Robbin
Gallery refurbished, painted and added sound
baffling to the space to make it shine as a 21st
